The Parish will be sponsoring a pilgrimage to Mother Seton Shrine in Emmitsburg on Saturday, April 28. We will leave at 8 A.M from the church and be back by 8 P.M. that night. Father Conley will be leading this pilgrimage to the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton where we will offer mass, have a tour, and eat lunch. While in Emmitsburg we will also visit the Lourdes Grotto. On the way back from Emmitsburg we will stop at Springfield Manor Winery in Thurmont for a wine and cheese tasting. Thanks to the generosity of a benefactor and the Keller Bus Company, the cost of the trip is just $35.00 per person and includes lunch and the winery visit.
