Paris Terrorist Attack

We have been in contact with our team in Paris and all our pilgrims are safe. We will continue to monitor the events closely to maintain the well-being and security of our pilgrims and staff. Presently, our hearts and prayers go out to all the families who have suffered losses resulting from this senseless violence. As more information becomes available we will advise pilgrims of any changes that may affect existing travel plans. >>Fr. John Cella, OFM, Director

Announcing a New Pilgrimage
