St. Maria Goretti School Pilgrimage
A Miraculous Blessing for Students, Staff, and Parents
This past Thursday, students from the school attended the pilgrimage of St. Maria Goretti held at OLGC Church. It was a moving and powerful experience for all who attended. Below are some thoughts from those that went.
Penelope & Braeden - grade 2: Braeden stated that he “really like seeing the wax statue of St. Maria and being able to touch our rosary to it.” Penelope said, “I really liked when I got the relic (3rd class) prayer card and got to touch the reliquary.”
Elle & Brody – Grade 4: When asked how the story of St. Maria affected her, Elle said, ”It was a really great experience and I thought it was exciting to go see a real life saint. It inspired me to want to become a saint too.” Brody said, “it was very inspiring and I was amazed that we were able to go up and touch the glass (reliquary). That was pretty cool!”
Justina – Grade 6: “I thought is was something cool to see. Learning about her was exciting and Fr. Carlos did a great job explaining everything.”
Jackson - grade 6: “Since Fr. Carlos talked about how St. Maria had healed other people with hurt arms and legs I thought I would try praying to her to help my hurt arm. So I put her prayer card on my arm and prayed to her. When I got home, I took off my splint and my arm didn’t hurt at all anymore. I really believe that St. Maria helped heal my arm.”
Gabby– Grade 7: “I thought it was really cool to see someone so young and so powerful right here in our church. Some of her story is really sad, especially what Alessandro did to her, but it was wonderful how she forgave him and then he forgave himself and changed his whole life. It was very emotional for me.”
Aiden- Grade 7: “I just thought it is was awesome to go up and actually touch the reliquary of her remains. I came back later that night and I got to go through two more times. I was crying by the end. It was awesome to see how many people came to see the relics.”
Kristine Daley - OLGC parent and educator: “This opportunity is so necessary and was so well done. What a great message for our children and parents. There is no piece without mercy. I feel really blessed to have my children and family at OLGC because they choose to provide these types opportunities for our students.”
Mary Birks – OLGC parent: “I was very moved by the experience. I talked to my son and he was very affected by it as well. His seat was right in front of St. Maria on the middle aisle, and seeing all the reverence, people crying, people bringing their ill children…really had an affect on him.”
