All are invited to join St. Joseph Parish in Salem for its second walking pilgrimage from the parish. Pilgrims will gather at St. Joseph Church beginning at 5:30 am, with departure at 6:30 am. Pilgrims should anticipate finishing at the Brigittine Monastery in Amity in time for 5:30 pm Vespers. Those who physically are unable to journey on foot can stay at St. Joseph Church with several “prayer pilgrims” to pray and chant the Psalms in solidarity with those on the journey.
