An Opportunity to Take Note Of:
"In the Footsteps of the Celtic Saints: A Pilgrimage to Wales and Ireland's Ancient East" - led by Teresa DiBiase and Dr. Frank Shirbroun (from St. Augustine's in Freeland), May 18-30, 2019. We invite you to journey to the sacred landscapes of Wales and Ireland's Ancient East, following in the footsteps of our Celtic forebears who nourished the seed of Christianity there. We will be pilgrims rather than tourists: our aim is not merely to see the sights but to open ourselves to the possibility of transformation. As pilgrims, we will take time for worship, prayer, and reflection; for food and fellowship and laughter; for exploration and for rest. If this invitation appeals to your sense of where you are in your own spiritual journey, join us on this pilgrimage. Among other places, we will visit holy sites in St. David's, Pennant Melangell, and the Llynn Peninsula, Wales, and Kildare, Clonmacnoise, New Grange and Glendalough, Ireland. For more information about this, our fifth pilgrimage, please email us at email@example.com
