WAHPETON, N.D. - The 55th annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of the Prairies Shrine will be held on Sunday, Aug. 14, at Carmel of Mary Monastery west of here.
An afternoon of prayer and reflection begins at 2:30 p.m. with a spiritual talk by Monsignor Robert Laliberte, Fargo. A rosary procession on the monastery grounds, led by the Lay Carmelites, follows the talk at 3:30 p.m. Mass will be at 5 p.m.
Seating will be available for the Mass, but those attending are encouraged to bring lawn chairs.
Pilgrims should bring written prayer petitions so that the Carmelite nuns can pray for their specific intentions. Pilgrims may also bring a basket of goods from their harvest of garden produce or farm crops to be blessed at Mass and given to the nuns, if the pilgrims choose.
The Knights of Columbus Council 2205 will serve a picnic-style meal following the Mass. A freewill offering will be collected and given to the Carmelite nuns.
The monastery address is 17765 78th St. S.
