While the Lenten Pilgrimage is limited to the Brooklyn and Queens area this season, that didn’t stop a group of nuns who traveled from New Jersey from participating in the event.

Since Ash Wednesday, pilgrims have been visiting a different parish in Brooklyn and Queens almost every day in an effort to experience the beauty of the church and the community there.

The Salesian Sisters of Don Bosco traveled from the other side of the Hudson and East Rivers to partake in the Diocese of Brooklyn’s festivity.

The sisters were greeted by Bishop Robert Brennan on Wednesday at the Parish of Mary’s Nativity-St Ann in the Flushing section of Queens.
