"The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure buried in a field, which a person finds and hides again, and out of joy, goes and sells all that he has and buys that field."

Italian Renaissance Tour, October 21-30

Only 4 Seats Available for Trip to Italy!

Father Dave will serve as the Spiritual Director on a trip through Italy. We will visit sites that have religious and historical significance. We will fly into Venice, and will visit Padua, Florence, Siena, and Assisi. Our last days will be spent in Rome, and our tour will conclude with a trip to Saint Peter's Square to particpate in a Papal Audience. We will celebrate daily Mass in Venice, Padua, Florence, Assisi, and in the Vatican crypt, just feet away from the tomb of St. Peter. As we travel from Assisi, we will stop in Montefalco to visit a winery. Seats on this trip are limited, so that we can travel in a smaller group.

There are 4 seats left before this trip is completely booked. Brochures are available at the entrances of the church and at the Parish Office. Please contact Father Dave if you are interested in traveling with his group!

Father Dave is also planning another Pilgrimage to the Holy Land in October of 2015. More details about this trip will come later this fall.
