Assumption College Students to Take Pilgrimage Walk for Mercy on Sunday as Part of Lenten Observance

WHAT: Members of the Assumption College community will participate in a pilgrimage walk beginning at the College’s Campus and ending at St. Paul's Cathedral in downtown Worcester as part of Assumption's observance of Lent and Pope Francis’s declaration of the Year of Mercy.

WHEN: Sunday, February 28, 2016
12 p.m.

WHERE: Chapel of the Holy Spirit, Assumption College
500 Salisbury St., Worcester

DETAILS: Carrying on a tradition of pilgrimages sponsored by the Assumptionists, the sponsoring order of the College, this 3.2 mile (5K) walk will start with a brief prayer service in the Chapel of the Holy Spirit at 12 p.m. The walk will take the group through Worcester, ending at St. Paul's Cathedral where they will meet students from other Worcester colleges for a prayer service and social gathering around 2 p.m.  Participants are encouraged to bring non-perishable food to share with the St. Paul's Cathedral Food Pantry. All members of the community are welcome to participate.

The Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Mercy, as declared by Pope Francis, is being celebrated from December 8th, 2015 to November 20, 2016. During this time, Pope Francis calls all Catholics to be profound witnesses to mercy and to "find the joy rediscovering and rendering fruitful God's mercy, with which we are all called to give comfort to every man and every woman of our time."


Founded in 1904 by the Augustinians of the Assumption in Worcester, Mass., Assumption College offers undergraduate students 42 majors and 48 minors in the liberal arts, sciences, business, and professional studies; as well as master’s and continuing education degrees and professional certificate programs—each through an educational experience that grounded in the rich Catholic intellectual tradition. The curriculum enables students to gain a depth and breadth of knowledge that leads to professional success and personal fulfillment. Students—whether on the Worcester campus or at the College’s Rome, Italy, campus—become engaged participants in Assumption’s classic liberal arts education, exploring new ideas and making connections across disciplines. To prepare for the workforce, students learn cutting-edge theory and best practices, conduct innovative research, and develop excellent communication and critical-analysis skills. Assumption graduates are also known for their thoughtful citizenship and compassionate service to their community. For more information about Assumption College, please visit
