I came across what can only be described as a pop -up pilgrimage where for two weeks coinciding with the International Eucharistic Congress, a new pilgrimage will be happening in Dublin where pilgrims will walk to and pray at a number of city centre church sites.
The walk is being held from Saturday 2nd -16th June and will visit seven city centre churches. All pilgrims will be issued with a “Pilgrim Passport” that will be stamped in each of the seven churches St Ann’s, Dawson Street, St. James, James Street, Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Whitefriar Street, John’s Lane, Thomas Street, St. Mary of the Angels, Church Street, St. Michans, Halston Street, and St. Mary’s Pro Cathedral, Marlborough Street.
According to the website all pilgrims will be issued with a “Pilgrim Passport” that will be stamped in each of the seven churches and at the last church St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Marlborough Street pilgrims will receive a Pilgrimage Certificate of completion. People can participate in groups, on their own; they can complete the Pilgrim walk or “Camino” in a day or throughout the days of the Congress.
