Dear Parishioners and Friends,
Come and See! Jesus’ invitation to his disciples is given to us as well to come and see why the ancient tradition of making a pilgrimage remains so important in our Christian faith.
For nearly two millennia, Christians have traveled to Holy Lands to walk the paths that our ancestors-in-faith walked before us, to see what they saw.
From November 8th through November 19th, I will be leading a pilgrimage to Italy. During which, we will visit locations to include St. Peter’s Basilica, the Catacombs of St. Calixtus, the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel.
We would love for you to join us on this sacred walk of faith. Our pilgrimage is planned as a spiritual journey with daily Mass at various historic altars. Together, we will pray, discover new places, experience good Christian community, and deepen our awareness of the grace of God in our lives.
And on the earthly plane, great experiences await as well! Each day will offer new vistas, memorable experiences, and many new friends.
Of course there will be ample time to relax over good Italian food, explore local sites on our own, and experience great shopping opportunities, too.
Whether you’ve been to Italy three dozen times, or this is your first trip abroad, this pilgrimage is sure to make memories of a lifetime.
We promise you that it will also expand your knowledge of the Church and deepen your faith.
We hope you’ll join us in journeying through one of the most beautiful countries on earth, and visiting the heart of the Catholic Church – Rome.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
