Pilgrimage to The Seven Churches

Come on a journey with our Media Production Assistant, Jason Nunez, as we visit seven churches! The Seven Churches Visitation is a tradition that grew out of this time of prayer and adoration. At the conclusion of the Mass of the Last Supper (Holy Thursday), we remember when Jesus asked his disciples to stay and watch with Him while they were in the garden. This powerful journey we make with Jesus, in visiting 7 churches is a spiritual act of mindful watching is a sort of pilgrimage to various altars of repose, in different churches that correspond to each of the seven places, or stations, that were made by Jesus between the Last Supper in the Upper Room to His crucifixion on the cross. Plus, Jason shares a beautiful moment his family experienced while visiting the 7 churches back in 2015.
