World Meeting of Families Pilgrimage

In September of 2015, my family and I had the opportunity to go on pilgrimage to the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, PA.

20,000 Catholics from around the world attended the week-long conference culminating in a visit that weekend drawing over 1 millions pilgrims from around the world. Below are my reflections before, during, and after this pilgrimage. It was truly a grace filled time.
