Three Hearts Pilgrimage
The Road to Restoration
Silence No More - Our Time to Awaken
In response to the current pervasive evil in our culture, Catholics across the world are uniting in America’s heartland as a visible sign of resistance against forces destroying all that Christianity holds as good, true, and beautiful.
Join us as we band together as pilgrims for Christ on a two-day march offering our physical and spiritual sacrifices for the defense of the traditional family, the sanctity of life, in pursuit of the good, the true, and the beautiful.
The Three Hearts Pilgrimage began as the Our Lady Help of Christians Pilgrimage, a 35-mile trek to the Benedictine monastery, Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey. This pilgrimage was originally established by a group of young boys from the St. John Bosco Institute (SJBI) in the spirit of brotherhood as the next generation of leaders soldiering for Christ.
Word of this “American Chartres” by the St. John Bosco Institute’s adventurous pilgrims spread quickly worldwide among Catholics associated with both the school and monastery... In response to many requests, the youthful boy-soldiers opened up their pilgrimage to fellow Christians wanting to walk alongside them.
As the attendance grew, so had the sacrificial penances for a return of the traditional family in society. With guidance and consideration from the monks, the pilgrimage will continue each year invoking Our Lady Help of Christians for physical and spiritual protection as we offer up our journey to the Three Hearts of the Holy Family, as we walk the long road of restoring our Christian Culture.
Why Our Lady Help of Christians
Our Lady Help of Christians is associated with the defense of Christian Europe, the north of Africa and the Middle East from non-Christian peoples during the Middle Ages. Saint John Bosco was an ardent promoter of devotion to "Mary, Help of Christians”, which helped her attain special renown that today includes veneration by many Chinese Catholics. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI designated 24 May her feast for the Roman Catholics in China facing persecution and restriction from the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association. Thus, we invoke OLHC to save our nation from the internal attacks against our Christianity and the stability of our great nation.
