2023 Pascua Florida Pilgrimage

April 11 - April 16, 2023
Sanford to San Augustine, FL
Pascua Pligrimage Pilgrims on Flager Beach, FL.

More than 500 years ago, the cross was planted on the coast of Florida by Spanish missionaries. Follow their path during this year's Easter Week.

Catholic Roots

The early heroic martyrs endured deplorable conditions bringing the Faith to native peoples and ministering to settlers. Modern-day Catholics may not face this death of the body, but the irreligious atmosphere in the United States cries for evangelization. Come walk the path of the martyrs from St. Thomas More Church in Sanford, Florida, to St. Augustine, the oldest known site of the First Mass in North America.

An Authentic Pilgrimage

The pilgrims leave on Easter Tuesday, April 11, from St. Thomas More church in Sanford, FL. Over the next 5 days, via walking and canoeing, and traversing land, swamp, and ocean, the pilgrims will make their way to the Mission Nombre de Dios at St. Augustine for Sunday Mass, on April 16, 2023.

The truest pilgrimage is the full five days, but accommodations are made for those who can only meet for part of the way, or even just visit the campsites in the evening to bring fellowship to the pilgrims.
