  • Saints, Monks & Beer,” a Pilgrimage through Belgium and northern France
    • Journey through the great heritage of your Catholic faith with Dr. R. Jared Staudt, Catechetical Formations Specialist of the Archdiocese of Denver, and Fr. John Riley of the Augustine Institute. On this pilgrimage through Belgium and northern France, experience magnificent Gothic cathedrals, ancient monasteries, art, food and beer, and most importantly the shrines of saints. Be immersed in the Catholic spiritual tradition as you visit the relics of St.Louis, King of France; St. Catherine Laboure; St. Vincent DePaul; St. Therese of Lisieux and her parents, Ss.Louis and Zelie Matin; Ven. Prosper Gueranger and Blsd. Columba Marmion. Grow in faith as you visit these and more great shrines – and enjoy some good brew made by monks along the way.
