86th Annual Pilgrimage to the Mother of God

Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great

The Sisters of the Order of Saint Basil the Great are happy to announce this year’s 86th Annual Pilgrimage honoring the Mother of God will be held on Sunday, October 1, 2017 on the grounds of our Motherhouse in Fox Chase Manor, PA.  The theme of this year’s Pilgrimage is “Set Aside All Earthly Cares: Find Peace Through the Mother of God.”

The usual beginning of this day is the opportunity for the Sacrament of Reconciliation starting at 9am.  A Divine Liturgy will be celebrated at 11:00.  We are honored to announce that the homilist for the day will be His Grace, Metropolitan Archbishop Stefan Soroka.  Responses at the Divine Liturgy and Moleben will be sung by the choir from the Ukrainian Catholic Shrine of the Holy Family in Washington, D.C.   Lunch will be available afterwards, featuring traditional Ukrainian food.  The day will conclude with a prayer service (Moleben) at 4:00 pm in the Grotto.

There will also be a program for children, youth and those seeking to deepen their prayer life.
