Dear Friends of Christ, Once again we have decided to lead a Catholic Pilgrimage to Europe. We have found that touring with a group of people having similar beliefs and values provides an excellent opportunity for fellowship and friendship. This year we will be traveling to Portugal, Spain and France. We will journey to some of the most sacred shrines and places of prayer and devotion in Europe! In Portugal, we will visit Fatima, where the Blessed Mother appeared early in the 20th Century. In Spain, our group will visit the city of Avila, made famous by St. Theresa and Montserrat, with the venerated Our Lady of Montserrat statue. Our tour will also take us to the beautiful cities of Salamanca, Madrid and Barcelona. In France, our travels will take us to Lourdes, where the Virgin Mary appeared to St. Bernadette and where healing occurs even today. There is a wealth of history to be seen and felt in the places we will be visiting and we really look forward to the experience. In addition, a pilgrimage can also be a wonderful opportunity for spiritual renewal and prayer. As such, we will celebrate mass daily as a group and try to get to know one another and have a great trip. We look forward to hearing from you soon. Sincerely, Fr Rod Kreidler Fr.
