The Cathedral of St. Joseph in Hartford will once again host a pilgrimage for Latinos on Oct. 5. Like the previous ones, this pilgrimage is sponsored by the Knights of Malta. The pilgrimage is offered as an opportunity to pray together for hope and healing of our own spiritual or temporal needs and those of all our brothers and sisters.

Some events of the day will include: opening prayer and recitation of the Holy Rosary in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a conference, individual blessings of all present, Holy Mass, celebration of the Eucharist, lunch and faith sharing. Throughout the day, priests will be available for Confession, except during the Mass. Collaborating in the preparation of this day of prayer and celebration are the Knights of Malta; Secular Order of the Servants of Mary; Movement of the Cursillos of Christianity; Charismatic Movement; John XXIII Movement; and Apostolic Group: Coffee with the Fragrance of Jesus.
