Catholic Pilgrimage to Greece and Turkey
A Religious Pilgrimage of a lifetime
We embark on a religious Pilgrimage of a lifetime as we retrace the footsteps of Paul through Greece and Turkey, to discover firsthand the sacred sites of Christianity, and the unforgettable shrines and markers commemorating the early Christians, Eucharistic miracles and dedicated saints. We’ll experience some of the world’s richest displays of architecture – from magnificent basilicas and cathedrals to humble convents … and art – from murals of Bible scenes, to inspired depictions of the symbols and events of our faith that we hold most dear: the Virgin Mary, the Transfiguration of Jesus Christ and the Trinity.
The Seven Churches of Revelation
The Seven churches of Revelation “which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea” will bring the early church to life, and our travels through this Holy Land to cities such as Corinth, where “many of the Corinthians hearing believed, and were baptized” (Acts 18:8), will no doubt thrill us.
Following the footsteps of Paul
As we follow in Paul’s footsteps, we will renew our commitment to the roots of our Catholic faith. The masses, meditations and Holy Communions we celebrate along the way will draw us together as a community, and will remind us of our blessings and the call to stewardship as followers of Jesus Christ.
