For the past two decades, the Archbishop of Baltimore has
commemorated Jesus' entrance into Jerusalem at the beginning of
Holy Week by walking with hundreds of young adults and youth.
Carrying palms and a cross, young pilgrims walk the streets of
Baltimore and visit holy sites along the way. The young Church will

celebrate at Archbishop Lori's Annual Youth and Young Adult
Pilgrimage, to be held on Saturday, March 28. This event will

cost is $20. Food is NOT provided; each person should bring a
backpack, bagged lunch and bottled water.

received the Sacrament of Confirmation and have a desire to serve
their peers as young disciples. They are involved with the planning
