Pilgrimage

 

Please be aware that this is a pilgrimage and will involve prayer, sacrifice, and discomfort. It is not a tour or vacation. There will be much time for prayer, Mass, reflection, and sharing. The schedule will be full. There will be some time for visiting museums, but that is not the focus of the trip. Over the years, many lives have been transformed through this pilgrimage.

 

Families of high school-age pilgrims are welcome to attend (i.e. parents, siblings).

 

  • Underage youth (not yet in high school) must be accompanied by a non-chaperone parent.
  • All adults must satisfy Essential 3 safe environment requirements.
  • All adults must attend boundary training (date in early January, TBA).
