Twentieth Sunday in Ordinary Time—August 18, 2019

Updated: Jan 9, 2020

Dear Friends in Christ:

Every year millions of people flock to Italy to experience the food, wine, culture and beautiful coastal resorts. Why can’t that be you? IT CAN! Join us on our upcoming pilgrimage to Italy to enjoy all of that and more! Join us as we explore the great religious history of Italy, enjoy some exquisite cuisine, and visit the Vatican—the center of Roman Catholicism and home of Pope Francis. Many have said “I always wanted to go but I am not sure about a pilgrimage.” Well, this is not a pilgrimage in the strict sense. Yes, we visit the holy sites; yes, we have Mass each day; and yes, we are traveling with fellow parishioners. There is also plenty of time worked into this schedule for exploring, especially when in Rome. So, come along and explore this great country with us!

THERE IS STILL ROOM BUT TIME IS RUNNING OUT---SIGN-UP TODAY! We are going October 1-10, 2019, to visit the Almalfi Coast and Rome! We will be seeing a lot during these days! We will visit the Floral Gardens of Caesar Augustus in Capri, the Saint Andrew Cathedral along the Amalfi Coast, the excavations in Pompeii, the sites of the life of Saint Pio of Pietrelcina (Padre Pio). We will also visit Lanciano, a town most noted for the Eucharistic Miracle which became the foundation for the Feast of Corpus Christi. Finally, we will spend a couple of days in Rome, the Eternal City, where we will see the Vatican Museums, Saint Peter’s Basilica, the Catacombs, the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, and more including plans for the weekly Papal Audience on Wednesday in Saint Peter’s Square.

This pilgrimage includes round-trip air from JFK, four-star hotels in Sorrento, San Giovanni Rotondo, and Rome, 6 dinners, daily breakfast, English-speaking licensed tour escort throughout, private motorcoach transportation, Daily Mass, and more. Cost per person in double occupancy is $3,779.00. Space is limited and is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Initial deposit of $500 is due at time of registration. To register, please call Candy at Elite Travel at 203-271-0623 AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. I hope you will join us!
