Mariapoch Pilgrimage info and Teen Campout deadline fast approaching!

Don't miss the annual eparchial pilgrimage at the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch (across the street from our monastery), which is coming up in two weeks!

You are invited to the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch in Burton, Ohio, August 10-11.  This pilgrimage weekend will explore the theme, “FIAT! Mary: Our Model of Faith.”  Experience Byzantine Catholic prayer services, including a Divine Liturgy on Sunday with Bishop John Kudrick, attend talks and activities for all ages, enjoy the beautiful Shrine grounds - you can even camp out overnight!  On Sunday afternoon, Deacon Sabatino Carnazzo—founder and executive director of the Institute of Catholic Culture—will speak on Mary as our model in faith.  Admission is free.  Meals will be available for purchase at the cafeteria.  For more information on the pilgrimage, visit or call 216-741-3312.

We are also coordinating an overnight campout for teens and young adults in conjunction with the pilgrimage at the shrine (with an optional volunteer day/vespers/bonfire/campout for young adults on Friday) on August 9, 10, and 11th. 

Please be sure to sign up for the campout by Friday, August 2nd! The cost is $25 per person, which strictly covers food - checks are made payable to Eparchy of Parma. Please be sure to print, sign and return your release form (and your medical cards for teens) to Mariapoch Campout, Christ the Bridegroom Monastery, 17485 Mumford Rd, Burton, Ohio 44021. 

If you have any questions, feel free to email us at or call us at 440-834-0290.
