74th annual Mt. Cristo Rey pilgrimage

Tuesday, October 22, 2013 - 5:29pm

The public is invited to join the new Bishop of Las Cruces Most Reverend Bishop Oscar Cantu and the new Bishop of El Paso Most Reverend Bishop Mark Seitz as they make their first climb up Mt. Cristo Rey. They will lead this year’s Annual Pilgrimage to the top of Mt. Cristo Rey on Sunday October 27.

The Pilgrimage will begin at 10:00am. The gates will open at 6:00am and will close at 2pm. Everyone is invited to attend and encouraged to stay for the mass at noon. Those attending are encouraged to arrive early as large crowds are expected.

The public is encouraged to make a donation to help offset the cost of security and medical services being provided by the City of Sunland Park. In the past, these services had been provided at no cost to the event but due to the financial troubles of Sunland Park, they have found it necessary to charge for these services.

There will also be no charge for parking and pets are not allowed.
