“[I]f we walk and talk and work and play and stand together in Jesus’ name – we’ll be who we say we are – truly Catholic.”

- Sister Thea Bowman

We invite all “to walk together” in celebrating the life and legacy of Venerable Augustus Tolton on the anniversary of his death. As the pilgrimage is a part of the Walking Together project, we will also pray with Servant of God Sister Thea Bowman.Both of these Black Catholics left an indelible impact on Catholicism in the United States.

Participants are welcome to join for any and all of the pilgrimage. Goodwill offerings will be collected that Saturday. A donation of $10 is suggested per adult with children and students attending for free. Donations also can be made here:
