Sanford - St. Augustine, Florida
Come walk the path of the martyrs from St. Thomas More Church in Sanford, Florida, to St. Augustine, the oldest known site of the First Mass in North America.
Most of the first martyrs in North America started their journey from Saint Augustine. At this holy place, the very first Thanksgiving was offered to the natives on September 8th, 1565, after Mass.
The Mass celebrated daily during this Pilgrimage is the same Mass that Father Francisco Lopez celebrated for the first time at the Mission Nombre de Dios on September 8th, 1565.
