Three Hearts Pilgrimage
- and -
THE ST. JOHN BOSCO INSTITUTE FOR BOYS
The Three Hearts Pilgrimage began as the Our Lady Help of Christians Pilgrimage, a 35 mile trek to the Benedictine monastery, Our Lady of Clear Creek Abbey. This pilgrimage was originally established by a group of young boys from the St. John Bosco Institute (SJBI) in the spirit of brotherhood as the next generation of leaders soldiering for Christ.
Word of this “American Chartres” by the St. John Bosco Institute’s adventurous pilgrims spread quickly worldwide among Catholics associated with both the school and monastery... In response to many requests, the youthful boy-soldiers opened up their pilgrimage to fellow Christians wanting to walk alongside them.
As the attendance grew, so had the sacrificial penances for a return of the traditional family in society. With guidance and consideration from the monks, the pilgrimage will continue each year invoking Our Lady Help of Christians for physical and spiritual protection as we offer up our journey to the Three Hearts of the Holy Family, as we walk the long road of restoring our Christian Culture.

CARDINAL BURKE'S INAUGURAL BLESSING OF THE THREE HEARTS PILGRIMAGE
OCTOBER 4TH, 2020
With great joy, I have received the news of the first Three Hearts Pilgrimage, which is now to become an annual pilgrimage. What more beautiful and efficacious way to obtain divine grace for our witness to the Catholic Faith, above all in the family, the incomparable fruit of Holy Matrimony. The devotion to the Three Hearts, which is most dear to me, gives expression to the reality of the inhabitation of God the Holy Spirit in our souls, uniting us in communion with God the Father in God the Son. Through you, I impart to all of the pilgrims my blessing, assuring them of my prayers for them throughout the pilgrimage and, above all, as I offer the Holy Mass. Please give my warmest greetings to the pilgrims. I hope that one day I may be able to join in the pilgrimage. Please pray for me. Yours in the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, and in the Purest Heart of St. Joseph,
