This past Sunday, @st.anthonymaryclaret hosted an 8k run called "Pilgrimage with the Virgin Mary."

Starting at @christcathedralca, @bishopfreyer gave the group a blessing before they began their run back to their parish in Anaheim. 👟 Participants of the run included St. Anthony parishioners and their Pastor, Fr. Bill Cao who all wore t-shirts that included an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe!
