On November 4th at 10:00 am at 150 E. Lincoln St., Shamokin, PA, a pilgrimage procession will begin from Shamokin, PA, to Mt. Carmel, PA. This will be a slow walk, which increases approximately 200 feet in altitude and will cover a little over 7 miles. This procession is anticipated to last about three hours. Lunch will be provided afterward for all who attend. Clergy, please feel free to vest in cassock and surplice.
In 1977, a nine-year-old girl saw the vision of Christ’s face on the Veil at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Shamokin, PA, during Easter week. In the subsequent years, tens of thousands of people have visited the church to pray before the Veil. We want to honor that history, to highlight a particular part of the Holy Trinity story, and to symbolically show that the story of the Episcopal Church in the coal region may have changed, but will definitely continue.
Any and all who are able are invited to process with us, the whole way or simply part of the way, as we walk the Veil from Holy Trinity Episcopal Church to its new shrine at Resurrection Mission in Mt. Carmel.
If you are interested in taking part in this event, please contact the Rev. Canon Dan Morrow at [email protected] or join us at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church in Shamokin, PA on November 4th at 10:00 am.
