Southhampton, NY - October 29, 2013 - CruiseOne and the Basilica Parish of the Sacred Hearts of Jesus and Mary in Southhampton are hosting a 10-day pilgrimage to France from April 21- 30, 2014. If you are interested in strengthening your faith and sense of community, join Monsignor Michael Vetrano and his community on this incredible opportunity.
CruiseOne Franchise Owner and Vacation Specialist Monica Colonna explains the transformation that often occurs when traveling on a spiritual trip like this one by quoting Miriam Beard. “Travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living.”
Notes Colonna, “Of course we all seek that spiritual fulfillment when voyaging on a faith-based pilgrimage such as this one, but one must remember not only the moments of solitude and enlightenment that we experience, but also the shared moments that are inevitable and golden when with your brothers and sisters of faith. These moments can create bonds between one another that can last a lifetime, resulting, in a stronger community through passion and charity upon return.”
The pilgrimage will visit some of the most celebrated spiritual places in the Catholic faith such as Basilica of St. Pius X, Our Lady of Lourdes Shrine, St. Bernadette’s birthplace and family home. In addition to Lourdes, the trip will include a visit to Paris, Lisieux and Paray-Le-Monial, where St. Margaret Mary received the vision of the Sacred Heart.
Of this pilgrimage Fr. Mike Vetrano, trip leader and spiritual director says: “A pilgrimage is part adventure and part journey of faith. It is an opportunity to explore some of the holiest placed in our Catholic history. It is also an opportunity to discover one’s own faith and spiritual growth in a place of extraordinary beauty; a place where many people have discovered God’s healing presence.”
