Young adults are invited to join a fun and faithful bike ride — the Tour de Shrine — in which riders will visit three Catholic shrines in Philadelphia on Saturday, Sept. 10.
The ride will begin at the National Shrine of St. Rita of Cascia in South Philadelphia at 8:45 a.m. with confessions, adoration of the Blessed Sacrament and a tour of the shrine.
It continues for a 25-minute trip, less than four miles, to the National Shrine of St. John Neumann in Northern Liberties for a tour and refreshments.
After a 45-minute ride (about seven miles) to the Miraculous Medal Shrine in Germantown, riders will gather for Mass, a tour of the shrine and a brown bag lunch in the adjoining courtyard of St. Vincent’s Seminary.
A one-hour ride of 10 miles on the Schuylkill River Trail will end back at St. Rita’s by 3 p.m.
Riders are encouraged to invite their friends.

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.
