Seven Churches Visitation
This Holy Thursday St. Monica will be following the ancient Roman tradition of visitation to 7 churches after the Lord's Supper on Holy Thursday. The tradition is an ancient practice originating in Rome where early pilgrims visited the seven major basilicas as a form of penance.
The visitation of 7 churches will involve going to pray before the Altar of Repose at different Catholic Churches in east Dallas. We will start our pilgrimage after praying at St. Monica's Altar of Repose following Holy Thursday Mass.
Our first visit will be at St. Monica followed by St. Patrick, Good Shepherd, Mother of Perpetual Help, St. Joseph, St. Paul, St. Rita and then back to St. Monica. We will be leaving St. Monica at 9 p.m. and returning at 12:30 a.m.
Tickets for the bus are $5 each.
