Join the 4th annual Pascua Florida Pilgrimage to Nombre de Dios Shrine in St. Augustine, one of the first Catholic settlements in the United States. The pilgrimage is 100 miles long and consists of 75 miles of walking and 25 miles of canoeing.
In April 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon landed on the northeast coast of Florida and planted the first cross in the sand. The early heroic martyrs endured deplorable conditions bringing the Faith to native Indians and ministering to the settlers. Modern day Catholics may not face death of body but the irreligious atmosphere cries for evangelization!
Come walk the path of the martyrs from St. Thomas More Chapel in Sanford (near Orlando) to St. Augustine, also the site of one of the earliest Masses offered in North America.
