Most Rev Peter Comensoli celebrates Mass at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels in Los Angeles, the pilgrims’ first stop upon arriving in the USA.

Five students from the University of Notre Dame Australia are undertaking the Guadalupe Pilgrimage, travelling through North America en route to the March for Life in Washington DC.

The students are part of a group of 18 young people being led on the pilgrimage by Most Rev Peter Comensoli, Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Sydney and Jessica Langrell, Chaplaincy Convenor at Notre Dame’s, Sydney Campus.

The pilgrimage began at the ancient Avenue of the Dead near Mexico City and will conclude emphatically on the streets of Washington DC in the March for Life, a pro-life event held annually on 22 January to commemorate the day the US Supreme Court legalised abortion in 1974.

On their 13-day journey, the pilgrims will travel through the Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, work with the Sisters of Life and the Franciscans of the Renewal in New York City and will meet the producers of the critically acclaimed film The Human Experience.

Join Notre Dame in following the footsteps of the pilgrims as they explore the beauty of human life through their blog, Guadalupe Pilgrimage.
