The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage is underway, and the pilgrims are headed to the Diocese of Brooklyn.

Currents News checked in with one of two dozen pilgrims who are walking the entire journey to Indianapolis for the National Eucharistic Revival.

Zoe Dongas works in the Office of Young Adult Outreach in the Archdiocese of New York and expected to spread her love of Christ along her journey.

However, she says she’s getting inspired by those who have joined her along the way.

The pilgrims will be making their way into the city on Memorial Day weekend.

Here’s how you can join the journey:

The easiest spot to meet up with the pilgrims in Manhattan is at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

They’ll be at the landmark cathedral at 10 AM on Sunday, May 26.

From there, they’ll eventually make their way to the Brooklyn Bridge, where the journey will be passed off into the Diocese of Brooklyn.

The procession will head to the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph for Adoration and Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament.

Before another full day of stops throughout the diocese.

From Brooklyn, the pilgrimage will travel through New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, and Ohio and eventually end up in Indianapolis for the National Congress.

Remember, this is just one of four routes traveling across the country to the congress.

Altogether, the pilgrims will be traveling 6,500 miles and passing through 65 dioceses.
