As the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage passed through New York City, it was a joyful celebration on the streets of Brooklyn. The Eucharist was processed in a monstrance across the Brooklyn Bridge, where Bishop Robert Brennan met the pilgrims.

Pilgrims started with Mass at St. James Cathedral, then again brought Christ in the Eucharist through the streets on Monday before boarding a boat to head to New Jersey, which stopped for a blessing near the Statue of Liberty.

From the Garden State, the pilgrims will move on to Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio, and finally Indiana. There, they’ll join pilgrims from three other pilgrimage routes across the U.S. for the National Eucharistic Congress in Indianapolis.

The Congress, a five-day event, will see thousands of Catholics participating in various activities. These include Mass, Eucharistic adoration, speeches, and entertainment, making it a vibrant and engaging event for all.
