The Archdiocese of Philadelphia is sponsoring a Walking Pilgrimage of Faith Sunday, Oct. 13, to the Cathedral Basilica of SS. Peter and Paul to celebrate the Year of Faith. Groups are welcome to make their own trip or make their way to one of seven landing sites from which they can walk with other groups to the cathedral.
The walk to the cathedral from the seven locations range in length from 1.4 miles to 6.3 miles, depending on the starting point. Departure times also vary based on the length of the intended pilgrimage. Participants are invited to arrive at the cathedral around 4 p.m. for free refreshments, followed by Eucharistic Adoration with praise and worship music, plus the sacrament of penance beginning at 5 p.m.
The event culminates with Mass at 6:30 p.m. with Archbishop Charles Chaput as principal celebrant.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
