St. Joseph Parish
Pilgrimage to Divine Mercy Shrine (9/21)
All aboard! Fr. Tony and Deacon Tom welcome you aboard the Travel Kuz tour bus for the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, MA (September 20, 2013)
Saint Joseph Parish sponsored a pilgrimage to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy on Friday, September 20. The weather was fabulous, and the scenic bus ride through Western Mass with the fall leaves beginning to turn in color was also very pleasing.
Twenty three people took advantage of the opportunity to visit the Shrine. Thanks to Claire Rabbitt for organizing the trip and Deacon Tom for leading the pilgrims in their spiritual journey.

Upon arrival, the group walked the now complete Stations of the Cross. They were then given the opportunity to take lunch and visit the bookstore or just wander the grounds. Mass was celebrated at 2pm and the Divine Mercy Chaplet was celebrated at 3pm.

Everyone seemed to have a very good time and enjoyed each others company.
Pilgrims thanked Deacon Tom and Claire Rabbitt, upon their return, for putting this trip together. The parish thanks them also for their very generous donation, which made it all possible.
