Footsteps of Saint Paul

September 20th – October 1st, 2024

Walk with us in the footsteps of Saint Paul, Saint John the Apostle, and the Blessed Mother as we travel to Greece and Turkey on this “New Testament Part II” pilgrimage, the standalone sequel to the Footsteps of Our Lord in the Holy Land. Climb the Areopagus where Saint Paul brought the faith to the Greek pagans (Acts 17). See the Parthenon, the Erechtheion, and the ruins of the temples to learn about the full splendour of ancient Athens. Visit the famous Hanging Monasteries of Meteora, assist at Holy Mass in the Biblical cities of Corinth and Beroea (Veria), and see the Baptistery of Saint Lydia in Philippi, where the Gospel was first preached in Europe (Acts 16). Visit Kavala (Biblical Neapolis), where Saint Paul arrived on his Second Missionary Journey, and also his point of departure for his final journey to Jerusalem (Acts 20). Go to Thessaloniki, home to the Thessalonians, and venerate the Stone of Saint Paul there, as well as two of the most beautiful basilicas in the city, St. Demetrios and Agia Sophia. Drive through the Vale of Tempē between Mount Olympus and Mount Ossa, and the mountain pass of Thermopylae, the site of the eponymous battle. Embark on a 3-day Iconic Aegean cruise: highlights include Mykonos, Santorini, Crete, the cave on Patmos where Saint John wrote the Apocalypse during his exile, and Holy Mass in the House of Our Lady in Ephesus, Turkey, where tradition holds that Saint John took care of her in the latter part of her earthly life. Daily Masses will be sung with Gregorian chant.

Ancient Greece & Ephesus 

September 23rd – October 2nd, 2024

Nearly two-thousand years ago, inspired by a dream, the Apostle Paul, traveled to Greece & Turkey, preaching the Gospel, establishing the first Christian communities in Europe. As a way to keep in touch with the fledgling congregations, he wrote letters to them that became the foundation of the New Testament. See where the Athenians, Corinthians and Ephesians came from as we trace the route of St. Paul. Continue in his steps as we sail on the turquoise waters of the Aegean Sea to the beautiful Greek islands of Mykonos, Patmos (where the exiled St. John wrote the Book of Revelation), Crete, and Santorini. Visit Ephesus, the site that tradition holds to be the final home of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Cross over the Corinth Canal enroute to the Peloponnese Peninsula. See the Byzantine city of Nafpilo and world heritage sites of Mystra and Sparta (place of fierce warriors). Explore the iconic Cape of Sounion and see the famed Temple of Poseidon. Climb the Acropolis of Athens to reach the Parthenon, the most important site of Ancient Greece. Contemplate on Mars Hill where St. Paul preached to the Athenians and take a tour of the city center to see the famous 2004 Olympic venues.
