Annual Buckley March for Men and Boys

Each year, priests, seminarians and laymen undertake the Buckley March, an annual Traditional Latin Mass pilgrimage from Barnesville, Maryland to the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C.  Named after its founder, Father James Buckley, FSSP, the march is now over a decade old.

Several men and their sons from our Lancaster Latin Mass community have participated in this grueling, but spiritually rewarding event.  Our Knights of the Altar Society servers joined their fathers for the march which has a strong component of promoting vocations to the priesthood.  The boys are able to interact with priests and seminarians as they hike 20 miles each day singing songs, praying all the decades of the rosary and observing periods of silent contemplation.

The purpose of the march is to make reparation for our own sins and the sins of our nation, to beg God’s mercy upon us and to pray for the conversion of hearts.

There are different ways to participate in the march. Men and capable teenage boys (able to walk 20 miles each day) are invited for the entire march and stay at the campsites.  Everyone else can join the last leg of the pilgrimage, which begins at the Georgetown Waterfront Park in D.C. for the final uphill march to the Bascilia.

The three-day march typically held in late May/early June comprises nearly 60 miles in total, following the Chesapeake and Ohio (C&O) Canal route.  The schedule begins with a sung Mass at St. Mary’s Church in Barnesville on the first morning and concludes with a Solemn High Mass at the Basilica in D.C.
