newark-aNEWARK, N.J. – A pilgrim prepares to take a photograph of the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Newark on Oct. 23, the first day of the Archdiocese of Hartford’s “Catholic Shrines in America” three-day pilgrimage.

About 40 people visited shrines in Newark, Philadelphia, Washington, Baltimore and Emmitsburg, Md., transported by motor coach.

They were joined on the second day by Archbishop Henry J. Mansell.

The pilgrimage was organized as part of the archdiocese's observance of the Year of Faith.

Also as part of the Year of Faith, Archbishop Mansell led a trip to Italy in May and a trip to the National Shrine of the Divine Mercy in Stockbridge, Mass., in August. (Photo by Maria Zone)
