MERCER, PA  The Annual Diocesan Pilgrimage in honor of the Transfiguration of our Lord and The Dormition of the Theotokos, held from August 22-23, 2009 provided spiritual nourishment for those who traveled from near and far to partake in the weekend's activities.   Nearly two hundred pilgrims were in attendance at the Pilgrimage Liturgy celebrated by His Eminence, Metropolitan Nicholas and clergy from throughout the diocese. 

Those who were unable to attend this year's pilgrimage are cordially invited to review the weekend's events by viewing the pilgrimage photogalleries  and watching His Eminence's homily delivered at the Sunday August 23, 2009 Pilgrimage Liturgy.
