San Antonio Pilgrimage 2024 INFO and Bus Signup

Fr. Purdy and St. Joseph’s Church, in San Antonio, are organizing the annual pilgrimage to the San Antonio Missions – on March 09th and there is hope for a nice turnout again this year.

Things to know:

• There is no cost or sign-up for the pilgrimage. (Donations made to St. Joseph’s Church are welcome.)

All pilgrims should meet at Conception Park at 9:00 am. There is no parking at Mission Conception, you may park at Conception Park or the convent behind the Mission. (Families may drop off at the Mission and then park their vehicle at either location, then whoever is driving will be shuttled over to the Mission by one of the shuttle drivers. Please reach out to the office if this is confusing.)

• There will be vans available to transport pilgrims along the route, for those who may not be able to walk the complete route.

• Pilgrims should bring their own lunches and water bottles. These will be carried by you during the pilgrimage.

• There will be some coolers available to refill water bottles at each stop and additional water bottles may also be available.
