Biking for Vocations
Biking for Vocations 2020 is an exciting five day pilgrimage designed to raise awareness of vocations to the priesthood and vocational discernment, as well as to generate support for the seminarians currently in formation.

In 2019, this new initiative started with eight bikers and has grown to twelve bikers, plus a few special guests! This year there will be two separate routes: the Perimeter Route with bikers riding along the outer edges of the Archdiocese, and the City/Suburban Route, where bikers will ride through the city of Philadelphia and into the northeastern suburbs of the Archdiocese.

Both of these pilgrimages include visits to parishes where the seminarians will participate in Holy Hours, prayer services, Mass and give their vocation stories.

Meet the Riders of 2020!
