Walk to continue from St. Patrick Church to Nebraskaland Tire Thursday morning, June 13

SIDNEY -- Sidney is on the route of an historic event, an event that unites four Eucharistic Pilgrimage routes to one point in Indianapolis, Indiana.

The National Eucharistic Pilgrimage is a two-month journey organized in conjunction with a three-year-long Eucharistic revival  campaign by the U.S. Catholic bishops. The national pilgrimage consists of four different routes beginning at opposite sides of the country and meeting for the National Eucharistic Congress July 17-21. Altogether, the four National Eucharistic Pilgrimage routes will cover about 6,500 miles, 27 states and 65 diocese.

The route that will pass through Kimball and Sidney started in San Francisco, Calif. Participants will stop in Sterling, Colo., before making their way north to Kimball Wednesday, June 12, and then on to Sidney. Following Mass Thursday morning, the route will continue from St. Patrick Church north to Illinois Street, then east to Nebraskaland Tire. From Nebraskaland, the procession continues on U.S. Highway 30 to the Colton area.

From Sidney, the Pilgrimage continues to Ogallala, North Platte, Lexington and Grand Island.
