BOROUGHWIDE — TWO BROOKLYN CATHEDRALS and several churches will be stops for the National Eucharistic Pilgrimage, which traverses the borough during Memorial Day Weekend. The pilgrimage here begins on Sunday afternoon, May 26, with the crossing of the Brooklyn Bridge, with the first stop at Our Lady of Lebanon Maronite Cathedral, an Eastern Rite Catholic congregation on Henry and Remsen streets in Brooklyn Heights. The pilgrimage will then proceed to the Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph-St. Teresa of Avila, both in Prospect Heights. Monday’s portion begins at 7 a.m. with Mass at St. Charles Borromeo Church in Brooklyn Heights. Other parishes on the pilgrimage include Mother Cabrini Park and the parish of Sacred Hearts-St. Stephen-St. Mary Star of the Sea, in Carroll Gardens; Holy Family-St. Thomas Aquinas in Boerum Hill; St. Michael in Sunset Park; and Our Lady of Angels-St. Andrew the Apostle in Bay Ridge.

The pilgrimage inspires devotion to the Eucharist, referring to Holy Communion and the Greek word for thanksgiving. The prayer in which the Body and Blood of Christ are consecrated is central to the Catholic faith.

Westbound motorists from the Prospect Expressway will not be able to exit at Hamilton Ave. during the overnight hours from May 28-30.
