Join Msgr. Gerald Kobbeman (Spiritual Director), Jacki Giacone (Pilgrimage Host), and Fr. Ervin Caliente (Spiritual Director) as we attend the World Meeting of Families in Dublin!

The World Meeting of Families is an historic moment of grace and a font of spiritual formation. Our faith journey through spiritually rich Ireland will give us opportunity to come closer to God and gratefully consider the sacrifices and dedication of those who came before. As we visit the sites of the early Christian Church in Ireland, 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.

Pilgrimage can be a life-changing experience of God's grace because it is a very special kind of travel. We journey to places touched by God, even as we carry, wrapped in faith, all our own individual desires, needs, hurts, expectations, and hopes. We let the Lord unwrap, unburden, break open, transform and even heal us as we invite Him into the deepest areas of our lives. Faith Journeys has the staff, resources, and expertise to experience this kind of pilgrimage in a very practical caring way."
