There are places in the world where heaven and earth have touched, where landscapes and lives have been transformed. From time immemorial pilgrims have come to these places to be present to the sacred reality encountered there and to be changed. This pilgrimage is offered with that purpose and intention in mind. Our schedule will allow a balance of journey, instruction, worship, and prayerful solitude.

One of the purposes of pilgrimage is to enable us to become pilgrims in our own lives.
Too many of us live our lives merely as tourists.
