Archdiocese Catholic Committee on Scouting 

2018 Chimayo Pilgrimage Project

Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Venturers, Campfire, Girl Scouts, and American Heritage Girls with their leaders are invited to join us for the 2018 Archdiocese Catholic Committee on Scouting  -  Chimayo Pilgrimage Project on March 29th and 30th. Starting at 4PM on Holy Thursday, we will be handing out Blessed Crucifixes to pilgrims as they make their journey to Chimayo.

The Chimayo Pilgrimage Project began eight years ago as a way to provide encouragement to the pilgrims on their journey and to hold high our Catholic faith. The goal is to provide encouragement and give religious items to pilgrims as they mount the last hill on their physical and spiritual journey into Chimayo. For those who have traveled a great distance, this hill can be agonizing and we want to be their Simon of Cyrene. It is a time where we put the Outing in Scouting and put our Catholic faith in action.

For more information on how you can participate in our activities please visit the Catholic Committee on Scouting website by visiting or contact Felipe Rael at
