2021 Lac Ste Anne Pilgrimage to take place online

This year’s Lac Ste Anne Pilgrimage is once again going online.

The five-day pilgrimage which attracts thousands of mostly indigenous people from across Canada will be strictly spiritual and not physical. The year’s pilgrimage July 24-28 will held online in an effort to maintain social distancing, protect pilgrims — many of whom are elderly or in poor health — and avoid the spread of COVID-19.

The pilgrimage site, west of Edmonton, is closed. There will be no camping or on-site visits.

Instead, organizers hope to keep alive the enduring spirit of the healing and spiritual renewal pilgrimage with a virtual Lac Ste Anne event that includes livestreamed Masses celebrated by bishops from Alberta and the Northwest Territories, video messages, and other programming.

The Lac Ste Anne Pilgrimage website will be the main hub for the online content.

Pilgrims flock to Lac Ste. Anne for healing

“When you look at the entire purpose of what is here, what is a common thread in everyone is the belief in God,” Alexis said. “They see people expressing their faith without fear. They express it without judgment. And that awakens people who may not believe. They didn’t come here by accident.”
