Lighting Hearts on Fire: One Day Walking Pilgrimage

Around the Diocese

A pilgrimage is a sacred journey that moves us towards God. Historically, pilgrimages were walked over the course of several months. During this Year of Spiritual Awakening, we invite you to make a one day 9 mile pilgrimage in beautiful Hunterdon County in preparation for the consecration of the Diocese of Metuchen to Out Lady of Guadeloupe.

Lighting Hearts on Fire is a campaign of spiritual renewal within the Diocese of Metuchen that seeks to bring about a renewed zeal for evangelization among the faithful. It entails a year of preparation beginning on December 12, 2018, culminating in the consecration of the Diocese to Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12, 2019. We anticipate that the new graces received during this year will supernaturally capacitate us to implement Bishop Checchio’s pastoral letter, Lighting a fire in the heart of our world.
