Join us for the 60th annual pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Mariapoch (across the street from the monastery) in Burton, Ohio, on Aug. 1-2, 2015. This year’s eparchial pilgrimage also marks the 300th anniversary of the weeping of the replica of the original icon of Our Lady of Mariapoch in Mariapocs, Hungary, Aug. 1-5, 1715, which is considered the birth of the shrine in Hungary. All are invited to this anniversary pilgrimage in Burton for a weekend of prayer and fellowship in honor of, and in supplication to, the Mother of God.

About the Speaker
Our speaker this year is Seminarian Patrick Schultz. God-willing, Patrick will be ordained a deacon in October and a priest in May for the Diocese of Cleveland. Patrick is a dynamic speaker who will talk about the persecutions facing the Church in both the Middle East and in our own country, and to what God is calling us in the face of these persecutions. His talk, "Awash Amidst Heresies & Idols: A Look at the Church and the World," will take place on Sunday, August 2, at 1:30 p.m.
Patrick will also speak about his vocational journey, at the campfire on Saturday, August 1, at 8:30 p.m.
