Ad Limina Pilgrimage with Archbishop Hebda and Bishop Cozzens

Date(s): January 9 – 18, 2020
Location: Rome and selected cities in Italy

The Office of Evangelization invites young adults to apply to join Archbishop Hebda and Bishop Cozzens on pilgrimage to Rome to deliver the report on the state of the Archdiocese to the Holy Father.

Bishops are obliged to make the Ad Limina Apostolorum pilgrimage about every five years. It requires them to pray at the tombs of St. Peter and Paul in Rome, and to report on the state of their diocese to the Holy Father. Recognizing the vital young adult life in our local Church, Archbishop Bernard Hebda and Bishop Andrew Cozzens invite young adults in the Archdiocese to apply to accompany them to the Eternal City in January 2020.

Applicants ages 21 – 35 are asked to provide a letter of recommendation explaining how they have shown leadership in evangelization in our local Church, or write a one-page essay explaining how Christ has worked through others in our local Church to draw them closer to His most sacred heart.

The pilgrimage is from January 9 through January 18, 2020. The cost per person will be announced soon. It will include airfare, simple accommodation, a few meals and transportation to Ad Limina events. Pilgrims should expect to provide most of their daily expenses. Additional information will be available soon.

Questions and applications should be directed to Enzo Randazzo randazzov@archspm.org or 651-291-4483.
