National Eucharistic Pilgrimage 2024

A lead-up to the National Eucharistic Congress in July, a pilgrimage is travelling across the United States. As it stops in North Platte June 14-16, there will be three days of services, culminating in a large Mass and Eucharistic procession.

From our Pacific coast, the western arm of the Pilgrimage will cross the Rocky Mountains and Great Plains on foot. The Junipero Serra Route will be the longest and most challenging branch of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage—covering over 2,200 miles!

This dynamic journey will provide countless opportunities for pilgrims to walk closely with our Eucharistic Lord, following him just as the first apostles did throughout his earthly ministry. We will travel across deserts in Nevada, mountains in Colorado, and the great plains of the Midwest. Join us as we carry the Blessed Sacrament across America! Learn more about the pilgrimage route.
