Day 0 - The Pilgrimage Begins


Our delegations met for the first time in the LAX airport as we boarded the flight to Japan.

After 12 hours we welcomed the sights of lush greenery and Japanese boats as we flew into Tokyo.


We had no issues with customs, transfers or meeting up with our leader “Hiro,” who accompanied us to our hotel and arranged our first dinner as a delegation.

The Archbishops celebrated Mass in the hotel room and then we then began the first day of our Pilgrimage of Peace Novena. Our Lady of Nagasaki, pray for us!
