Pilgrimage for 8th Graders and Parents

For over thirteen years, St. Mary’s had led a pilgrimage each year to Italy for 8th graders and their parents during the Easter season, shortly after the 8th graders have received the Sacrament of Confirmation.  It is an extraordinary opportunity for parents and children to grow in their faith by visiting some of the holiest and most beautiful Christian sites in the world.  Each student must travel with one parent, but both parents are welcome to participate.

An informational meeting for the 2018 pilgrimage will be held in the Lyceum on Tuesday, October 10, from 7 to 9pm. The tour operator will present the itinerary and tour information.  Full trip details and contract forms will be posted here following the meeting.

The 2018 8th grade pilgrimage is scheduled for April 1st – 10th, and will include Vatican City, Rome, Orvieto, Assisi, Padua, Venice, and the St. Padre Pio Shrine in San Giovanni Rotondo.

Please feel free to contact the parent trip coordinators, Shawn and Cassie McLaughlin, with any questions.
