A Jubilee Year Pilgrimage for Young Adults

Siempre adelante! / Always forward!

- St. Junipero Serra

We at Modern Catholic Pilgrim are excited to partner with the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to host a two-day, 30-mile walked pilgrimage from Mission San Fernando to Mission San Gabriel later this year.

Our Schedule:


8:00am - Pilgrims' Blessing and Start of Pilgrimage at Mission San Fernando

8:15am - ~4:30pm - Walk ~15 miles to host parish

Spend evening with hosts in their homes.


8:00am - Begin walking

~12:00pm - Arrive at Mission San Gabriel for Mass

~2:00pm - Conclude pilgrimage

All pilgrims will be asked to make a goodwill contribution to reserve their spots on the pilgrimage. Half of that contribution will go to the parishes of our host families.

We will work together to coordinate rides as necessary after the pilgrimage concludes. Pilgrims are responsible for their own lunches and snacks.
