Pilgrim Virgin – HNJ Home Visitation Program
Parishioners are invited to participate in the “Home Visitation Program”. Bi-weekly the HNJ Prayer Group moves the image of the Blessed Mother, referred to as the Pilgrim Virgin, from home to home. The Group or at least one member thereof (optional), will bring the Pilgrim Virgin to your home, pray the Rosary and leave her with you for the next two weeks. The only obligation is that you (your family) pray the rosary daily in her presence during this time that she remains in your home. The Group or a member will then return to your home, pray the Farewell Prayer and take her to another home until all homes are visited. This is strictly a pilgrimage and no social activity is required.
