This footbridge at the end of 35th Street in Chicago's Bronzeville neighborhood crosses tracks and is the approximate location of a former train stop where Servant of God Father Augustus Tolton disembarked the day he died. Participants joined Bishop Joseph Perry for a pilgrimage to historic sites in Chicago where Tolton walked. Stops included where he collapsed from heat stroke, the former site of St. Monica's Church at 36th and Dearborn streets, and the grave site of his mother. Tolton, a former slave, is the first recognized American diocesan priest of African descent. The archdiocese of Chicago opened up his cause for sainthood in 2011.
