Pilgrimage to 'America's Catholic Church'

In observance of the Year of Faith, Catholics from throughout the East Coast will gather in pilgrimage, sponsored by the Knights of Columbus, on Sunday, Sept. 8, 2013, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C. Popularly known as 'America’s Catholic Church,' the Basilica is the patronal church of the United States and its preeminent Marian shrine.

The date is also the 50th anniversary of the dedication of the Basilica’s 56-bell carillon, which was a gift of the Knights of Columbus.

The pilgrimage begins with Mass at noon, followed by exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, recitation of the Rosary and renewal of the Order’s consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary. Benediction and a carillon recital will conclude the activities at approximately 3 p.m. Confessions will be available from 10 a.m. to noon.

His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI has named SK Rev. Msgr. Robert J. Coyle, a retired U.S. Navy Chaplain Commander and current Pastor of Corpus Christi Catholic Church in Mineola, N.Y., as Titular Bishop of Zabi and auxiliary bishop for the Archdiocese for the Military Services (AMS). After his episcopal ordination, Rev. Msgr. Coyle, 48, will serve under His Excellency, the Most Reverend Sir Knight Timothy P. Broglio, J.C.D., Archbishop for the Military Services, as Episcopal Vicar for the Eastern Half of the United States.

Archbishop Broglio will ordain Bishop-elect Coyle in a solemn Mass at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on April 25, the Feast of St. Mark. The Archbishop expressed great joy at the announcement in Rome and extended Rev. Msgr. Coyle a warm welcome to episcopal service in the AMS.
