2021 Arlington Diocese Pilgrimage


Bishop Burbidge invites you to the 2021 Diocese of Arlington Pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Saturday, October 30! St. James will be providing bus transportation to the Shrine, or take your own mode of transportation and meet the parish there. Online registration for the bus has ended.  Please contact the Parish Office to inquire if the few remaining bus seats are still available if you would like to take the bus to the pilgrimage

Bring a bag lunch. We are no longer taking any preorders for box lunches. There will be some box lunches there for sale at the pilgrimage, but they may sell out.

You won’t want to miss this wonderful pilgrim experience for the whole family! (Please note: masks are required on the bus per Federal law and will also be required inside the Shrine per current Washington, DC, mandate.)
