Pilgrims in Paraguay
make their way to
a local Marian Shrine
This year the preparation of the Pilgrimage featured presentations by two La Salette Missionaries, Frs. Claudino Lise and Daniel Aguirre. They visited three parishes and over ten communities to celebrate the Eucharist, pray for the coordinators as well as the subscribers to the La Salette Magazine, Revista Salette.
The theme for this year's pilgrimage in connection with the Year of Faith and the parish theme was “Mary: Strength for the Faith of Family and Youth.”

In the afternoon after the barbecue, a priest gave a special blessing for the sick with the monstrance. The pilgrims were then dismissed, having shared a day of faith and devotion to Mary.
