More than half of the 84 participants in last year's Catholic Voice Marian Shrines Pilgrimage joined in a reunion Jan. 30 at St. Raymond Parish, Dublin. A potluck luncheon and photos and a video were shared. Revs. Lawrence D'Anjou and Augustine Joseph, who were on the pilgrimage, joined in the reunion festivities. The Oct. 5-15, 2015, pilgrimage visited Marian shrines in Portugal, Spain and France. This year, The Catholic Voice is sponsoring a Year of Mercy Italy Pilgrimage from Oct. 20-29. A question and answer informational meeting about the Italy Pilgrimage will run from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. March 12 at The Cathedral of Christ the Light Parish Hall, 2121 Harrison St., Oakland.
