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.
