Help us celebrate the
Bicentennial of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati
the longest Marian Pilgrimage in the United States.


The pilgrimage begins Sunday, May 16, 2021 with a Mass at the Our Lady of Fatima Shrine in Russells Point in the Northern area of the Archdiocese.From there, small groups of pilgrims will begin this historic pilgrimage with a special statue of Our Lady of Fatima, blessed by Archbishop Schnurr for this occasion.

The pilgrimage will last for 33 days, making stops at parishes in every deanery of the Archdiocese, and will be highlighted by four cornerstone family events.

The pilgrimage will end at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Peter in Chains on the day of the bicentennial, Saturday, June 19, 2021. On that day, the Archbishop will re-consecrate the Archdiocese to Jesus through Mary during a special Mass commemorating the bicentennial.
