Catholic Review: National Eucharist Pilgrimage meets rain and prayers at first Maryland stop


WESTMINSTER – The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage eastern route arrived in Maryland for three days of prayer, adoration and procession with a stop June 5 at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Carroll County.

The route – named for Maryland’s own St. Elizabeth Ann Seton, the first American-born saint – is one of four coming from all corners of the country to join up July 17 at the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis.
