Join fellow spiritual companions at The National Shrine of Mary, Mother of the Church, Laurie, MO June 11, 2022 for a pilgrimage led by Ed Van Buskirk. As a cradle Catholic and active parishioner, Ed felt he had a firm grasp of his faith. However, at age 47, he realized he’d forgotten something foundational – the Ten Commandments. That defining moment moved Ed to rediscover and share with others the wisdom and joy of the Commandments. Mr. Van Buskirk founded If U Love Me, a nonprofit prayer ministry that shares the joyous fulfillment of living out the Commandments via speakers, parish-based adult faith formation, videos, events, and more. Pilgrimages begin with registration at 8:30 a.m. and include two speaker sessions, the Sacrament of Reconciliation, Eucharistic Adoration, Benediction, the Rosary and the Divine Mercy Chaplet, culminating with Mass at 4:30 p.m. Pilgrimages and lunch are offered without charge. Donations are gratefully received. Register by email to email@example.com or call 573 374 6279. The Shrine is located along Missouri Route 5 between Versailles and Camdenton, Missouri. It is about 20 miles north of Camdenton and 17 miles west of U.S. Business Route 54 at Lake of the Ozarks.
