Annual Pilgrimage for the Sea Services
October 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
We welcome everyone to join us for our annual Pilgrimage for the Sea Services, where we honor and pray for the men and women who serve our country at sea, including the Unites States Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Merchant Marines and Public Health Service. Elizabeth Ann Seton’s sons served at sea, and she was deemed the Patroness of Sea Services in 1977. Cosponsored by the Archdiocese of Military Services, this annual event honors all who serve or have served at sea. We pray for Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton’s intercession with God to protect them and keep them safe.
The day begins with Mass at 3pm, which will be celebrated by the Most Reverend Michael C. Barber, SJ, the current Bishop of Oakland, California. Bishop Barber served for many years as a chaplain in the Naval Reserve.
After Mass, there is a complimentary dinner. If you would like to attend the dinner, please email the Shrine at email@example.com.
