Day Pilgrimage to Lewiston, NY

posted Oct 8, 2018, 1:46 PM by St. James Parish, Colgan
Lewiston, in the Niagara Falls region of upstate New York is home to the National Shrine Basilica of Our Lady of Fatima.  The beautiful glass-domed Basilica is located in 6.5 hectares of grounds approached by the impressive Avenue of Saints.  At the top of the dome sits, in graceful majesty, a 4m tall granite statue of Our Lady of Fatima.

Since 1991, the Shrine's grounds have hosted the Festival of Lights consisting of 75 displays gorgeously illuminated, including a giant nativity scene featuring a 3m tall angel hovering over the Holy Family.

Join us for a one day pilgrimage to the Shrine to see this spectacle on Saturday December 1st.  The cost, based on a full bus, is $35 per person.  Everyone on the bus must have proper documentation to cross the border into the United States and out-of-country insurance.   The bus will leave St. James Church, Colgan, at 10am, returning at approximately 10.30pm. 

Please sign-up after Holy Mass or contact the office for more details.
