Way of St. Joseph Walking Pilgrimage

Honor St. Joseph by participating in a free, family-friendly walking pilgrimage on Saturday, May 3rd, 2025. The Way of St. Joseph will begin at 9 a.m. at St. Joseph Church, Mishawaka, wind its way along the River Walk, and eventually end up at St. Joseph Church, South Bend. There will be three other on-ramps along the way for families for whom the entire pilgrimage would be too taxing. The event will end with a prayer service, food, and fellowship in the fenced-in parking lot and playground at St. Joseph Parish.

Join us on Saturday, May 3, 2025!

The Way of St. Joseph is a pilgrimage between St. Joseph Catholic Church in Mishawaka and St. Joseph Catholic Church in South Bend held on the Saturday before the Feast of St. Joseph the Worker. Join us as we honor St. Joseph in a region that gives that name pride of place for its churches, river, and county.

For those who are unable to complete the five-mile pilgrimage at once, there are recommended access points along the way. When you register, please select the point where you plan to join so we know how many people to expect. (You will be able to edit your sign-up later if you change your mind.)

Journeying on this pilgrimage is a time to praise God through His son’s adoptive father, reflecting on the terrific sacrifices Joseph made to be a quiet man of God and to trust God’s plans for him and his family.
