Many of the pilgrimages at the Shrine occur on a regular basis (annually or bi-annually). Most diocesan and ethnic pilgrimages are scheduled on Saturdays in the Fall or Spring, although pilgrimages during the week are welcomed. Here you can see pilgrimages that are already scheduled, which might help you with your own planning purposes.
