Catholic Daughters take pilgrimage trip
The Junior Catholic Daughter Court of Anna Poth sit in front of the statue of Blessed John Paul II, the first Polish pope, during their Year of Faith pilgrimage trip to the Panna Maria Immaculate Conception Church.
The Junior Catholic Daughter Court Anna Poth and their chaplain, Father Gregory Szewczyk, recently made a Year of Faith pilgrimage trip to Panna Maria Immaculate Conception Church.
The girls participated in a “scavenger hunt” around the church grounds, recited a rosary, and enjoyed ice cream courtesy of Father Gregory. Father Gregory also brought along his guitar and led the girls in song.
Immaculate Conception Church was designated as a pilgrimage destination by Archbishop Gustavo Garcia-Siller and is the site of the oldest permanent Polish settlement in the United States. Several of the JCDA members are descendants of these early settlers, including founder Father Leopold Moczygemba.
