Walking in the Footsteps of Paul in Greece including a 3-Night Cruise

with Father Marlon Mateo and Cambria Tortorelli
October 20-30, 2017

Fr. Marlon Mateo

Cambria TortorelliTherefore, comfort and upbuild one another…esteem them with the greatest love…remain at peace with one another. (I Thess 5: 11, 13). On our pilgrimage through Greece, we will follow the footsteps of Paul to discover firsthand the sights, sounds, and feelings that he may have had as he established the Church in this enchanting, ancient land. As we behold the timeless holy places and contemplate the exemplary life of Paul who came not in word only, and not in affliction only, but also in power and with much assurance and great joy to admonish those he served, to join them in giving thanks to God and to remember without ceasing… great works of faith, labours of love and patience of hope in Jesus Christ (I Thess 1), we will renew our commitment to the roots of our Catholic faith. The masses and meditations 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.
