Bangalore, Mar. 16. Don Bosco Youth, Lingarajapuram, Bangalore, went on a walking pilgrimage to St. Joseph's Church, Briand Square, Chamarajpet, Bangalore, on March 13, 2021. The holy trip undertaken marks the Year of St. Joseph and the spirit of the Lenten season. St. Joseph's Church at Briand Square has been declared a shrine for the year of St. Joseph.
Twenty-five young people from the parish took part in the pilgrimage to obtain indulgences. On the way, they prayed the Rosary and made the Way of the Cross in small groups. The walking pilgrimage began from St. Mary's Basilica, Shivajinagar, at 9.15 a.m. to reach St. Joseph's Shrine at 11.10 a.m. The youth of the place welcomed the pilgrims and joined for the Holy Mass, and prayed at the statue of St. Joseph with lighted candles. Later, the youth visited Bosco Mane, a Salesian home that takes care of the run-away children, to learn about Young at Risk (YaR) mission and volunteerism in the Salesian context.
