The Archdiocese of Cincinnati will mark its bicentennial with a walking Marian pilgrimage, helping the faithful prepare for the re-consecration to Jesus through Mary.
On June 19, 2021, the Archdiocese of Cincinnati will celebrate the 200th anniversary of its founding with a Solemn Mass of Thanksgiving offered by Archbishop Dennis Schnurr. At the Mass, Schnurr will re-consecrate the archdiocese.
As a spiritual preparation for the re-consecration, the diocese thought of a walking Marian pilgrimage.
“Traditionally the preparation for a consecration to Jesus through Mary takes 33 days,” said a statement from Jennifer Schack, the director of media relations for the archdiocese. “The 33-day pilgrimage is our way of bringing the archdiocese together to participate in the 33-day preparation.”
