WASHINGTON- More than 1,500 people boarded buses in the early pre-dawn hours in Fairfield County for a one-day pilgrimage to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception, and 500 more faithful from the diocese made their own way to the national landmark to participate in the drove to participate in Mass.

They were joined by pilgrims from New York City, China and the Philippines for the Solemn Mass, which began at 2 p.m. and drew almost 4,000 people. It was broadcast live on EWTN and was also covered by Catholic TV out of Boston and NET-TV of Brooklyn.
