Local pilgrims share videos, photos and more as they journey through Germany and Austria
Pilgrims pose for a photo after Mass near Salzburg, Austria on June 26, 2022.
Bishop Robert Gruss is leading a diocesan pilgrimage in Germany and Austria right now (June 22 to July 1). A highlight of the journey was the Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany. Every ten years, the village of Oberammergau fulfills a 400-year old promise to God to put on the Passion Play every decade in thanksgiving for sparing their lives during an outbreak of the plague.

The pilgrims are visiting many religious sites, including shrines and churches, and Bishop Gruss is celebrating Mass for the group each day.

Please continue to pray for our pilgrims.
