In September many institutional pilgrimages arrive at the Shrine. The greatest one: Polish Farmers' Pilgrimage holds the celebrations on the first weekend of the month when the National Harvest Thanksgiving takes place.
It is also a month in which we commemorate the beginning of the World War II, September 1, 1945 being the first day of the war in which over 6 million Poles died. Eternal rest grant all the victims of the war oh Lord.
