The pilgrimage tour with the emphasis on Passion Play of Jesus Christ in Oberammergau with great insight into the Christian history of Germany.  So besides the Passion Play, we will be visiting Marian Apostolic Movement Shrine in Schoenstatt, great monasteries of Ettal and Andechs,  sanctuaries like Altotting, the birthplace of Benedict XIV in Marktl am Inn, amazing castle of Neuschwanstein... most inspirational places of crucial significance for Germany showing her strong Catholic roots! A truly German tour, from history to architecture, to food and good wines!


Our daily prayers and Holy Masses with Fr. Sylvester will be guidance on how to make this pilgrimage a spiritually fruitful for every pilgrim that will join us!   This group will be fairly small, the number of places on this pilgrimage is very limited!
