Pope Benedict has proclaimed this The Year of Faith and encouraged us to make a Pilgrimage of Faith. A local pilgrimage in the Roman Tradition is available for the Faithful of Columbus in “The Seven Church Tour.” The Seven Church Tour is a bus tour based on the “Seven Church Walk” started by St. Philip Neri in the 16th century in the City of Rome.  Fr. Joshua Wagner, a priest of the Diocese of Columbus and experienced Roman Tour Guide, invites you to become a part of this Tradition as we visit and pray in the Seven Historic Catholic Churches of the City of Columbus (this includes a visit to our own St. Mary).  A Plenary Indulgence for the Year of Faith, as well as Mass are part of the Seven Church Tour.  Seats are EXTREMELY limited for this Pilgrimage. If you want to buy tickets go to
