Preparations are underway for the second stage of the pilgrimage "From Ocean to Ocean" in America, which will begin in August this year. This time it will be a route from the Atlantic coast to the Pacific Ocean. The effort to carry out the pilgrimage is on the shoulders of Human Life International (HLI), an international organization defending life and the family founded by the world-famous Benedictine late. Father Paul Marx.
Fr. Peter West, vice president of HLI for Missions will be the custodian of the icon during the pilgrimage to the United States. He participated in the ceremony of dedication and application of the icon to the original, which began the first stage of the pilgrimage "From Ocean to Ocean". Facing the Icon of Czestochowa in the Jasna Gora Chapel, he first made the Act of entrusting the Protection of The Civilization of Life and Love Into the hands of The Most Blessed Virgin Mary (in English). Then the act was recited in Russian and Polish.
American Committee prepared first information about the upcoming pilgrimage at:
where you can find the first video - information for America, inviting them to participate in this historic event.
All information about the pilgrimage can be found on our websites www.odoceanudooceanu.pl (in Polish) and www.fromoceantoocean.org (in English). We are pleased to announce that Spanish version is now fully ready www.deoceanoaoceano.org, which was translated by a HLI volunteer from Ecuador - María Verónica Vernaza. It took her five months. Thank you.
Organizers encourage American pro-lifers to approach their pastors and to be involved in the pilgrimage. As you can see there is still time and chance to invite the Mother of God to your own parish.
