Rose Prince Pilgrimage to take place in Lejac

All are invited to honour the memory of Rose Prince July 5-7
Pilgrims will have the chance to sing, learn, and pray for peace and healing together at the Rose Prince Lejac Pilgrimage.  Aboriginal and non-aborginal communities are invited to join the ceremony.   
The three-day event will include meals, the Stations of the Cross, confessions, a candle procession, a healing Mass with guest speaker Sister Kateri Michell, SSA, and a Mass said by Bishop Stephen Jensen.

The pilgrimage is expected to be a spiritual and life-changing experience. First Nations Ministry Coordinator Rennie Nahanee said, “Some people take dirt from the grave, hoping a miracle will happen.”
He added that the ceremony can allow for admitting and repenting of sins, which can “bring people to a new way of life.”

The Rose Prince Pilgrimage will take place July 5-7, west of Prince George, between Fraser Lake and Vanderhoof.
