Catholic Financial Life Pilgrimage (Attleboro, Mass.)
A day of worship and family activities surrounded by the beauty of the La Salette grounds makes this an annual tradition for our New England member families. In a tradition dating back to the early 1950s, this gathering at the National Shrine of Our Lady of La Salette is held in both English and French, allowing attendees to meditate with the Stations of the Cross or pray the Rosary. The pilgrimage has evolved into a folk festival of sorts, now including family activities, traditional French-Canadian foods, and even a petting zoo in recent years. The centerpiece of this event, though, is the mass in the breathtaking chapel at the shrine, which holds over 1,000 people.
The following events are sponsored by individual chapters of Catholic Financial Life. Please contact your local chapter of Catholic Financial Life or our home office
for more information.

With admission for both adults and children at $3 each, with children under 4 admitted free, why not come spend a day at the park?
