Oaktown to Pimento – 39.2 miles
High of 85° and Partly Cloudy
Sullivan County: Pilgrims depart from Morris Chapel and cross into Sullivan County. At the midpoint of the day’s journey, pilgrims enjoy lunch at beautiful Bass Lake near Greene-Sullivan State Park, where Bald Eagles are frequently spotted. We’ll bike to Pimento, IN just south of Terre Haute. Mass will be celebrated at St. Mary-of-the-Woods Immaculate Conception Church, followed by dinner on campus. What a perfect spot to celebrate the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary!
