They were also invited to share a meal with Monseigneur Ndiaye Benjamin, the Archbishop of Dakar.
The annual pilgrimage of 2014 that took place in August was called “Pelerins avec la Sainte Famille” (the pilgrims with the holy family). This represented all the challenges that families have had to face including educating their children and keeping the family structure together.
