Before heading off to campus, young adults are invited to make an important detour to Loretto.
Bishop Mark will celebrate his annual outdoor Mass for all students entering or returning to college, and for 2022 high school graduates entering the work force or military. The liturgy is scheduled for August 7 at 7:00 p.m. at the Our Lady of the Alleghenies Shrine in Loretto.
As always, the Bishop will have a special homily message and blessing for those embarking on the next chapter of their life, and he will offer a small spiritual gift.
Please bring your own lawn chair. If it rains, Mass will be celebrated inside the Basilica of Saint Michael the Archangel.
