Ordinary people, extraordinary pilgrimage.

Canon Hellmann pilgrimage for restorationNow in its 18th year, the Pilgrimage for Restoration has since its beginning drawn on the extraordinary benefits of the ancient Roman Liturgy: to nourish ordinary spirits with an extraordinary spirituality.

Restoration? What restoration?

In the first place, the restoring of grace to its place of pre-eminence in the souls of the baptized.

Invoking the intercession of America’s saints and martyrs, we desire that the Catholic Faith restore every dimension of our lives: beginning in our hearts, and in our families, workplaces, parishes, neighborhoods, cities, dioceses, the American nations.

The pilgrimage is an exercise of penance and prayer, of contradiction and restoration, having both a personal and social character. Inspired by the ancient Pentecost Pilgrimage to Notre-Dame de Chartres in France we embrace the traditional doctrine & practice of Holy Church, with all its demands.

A special intention of the pilgrimage is the restoration of the Catholic family, civil society and the specifically Roman liturgical tradition. We hope thereby to show our attachment to the Church’s tradition – East to West – and the riches it contains, not with the intention of reverting to some by-gone era, but rather of drawing benefits from the ancient sources and putting them to work in the world today.

The 18th annual Pilgrimage for Restoration is scheduled for 20-22 September 2013. Come to restore. The rest will come.
