10-Day Pilgrimage to Austria and Germany | July 6 - 15, 2020

Led by Fr. Jim Walsh, Pastor


Dear Friends,

We couldn’t be more excited to present this opportunity for you to join us on a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage that has been planned to include a very special highlight: the 42nd world-famous Passion Play that takes place every ten years in Oberammergau!

The history of the Passion Play dates back to 1633. In the middle of the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the Oberammergau villagers swore an oath that they would perform the "Play of the Suffering, Death, and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ" every ten years. Every ten years since then, the villagers fulfill their promise to God. What a tremendous and unique way for us to unite our own spiritual journey with this extraordinary tradition of faith. This spiritual journey promises to be uplifting and inspiring to say the least. We hope you will prayerfully consider accompanying us and other brothers and sisters in Christ on this pilgrimage!

Sincerely,

Fr. Jim Walsh
