National Eucharistic Pilgrimage 
through Marin County

The second day of the St. Junipero Serra Route of the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage took the pilgrims through Marin County. The day began with a private Mass with St. Patrick School in Larkspur which was followed by a Eucharistic procession around campus. Middle school students from St. Patrick’s then walked with Jesus and the pilgrims to St. Sebastian Catholic Church with a brief stop to pray and bless healthcare workers and patients outside MarinHealth Medical Center. A Eucharistic Holy Hour was held at St. Sebastian’s for the sick.

From St. Sebastian’s the pilgrimage continued to San Rafael where it met up with students from St. Raphael School and parishioners from St. Raphael Catholic Church. More than 1000 people processed from Albert Park in San Rafael to St. Raphael’s for Eucharistic Adoration and the Rosary. Later, Santa Rosa Bishop Robert Vasa presided at Solemn Vespers and a Eucharistic Holy Hour.
