Our pilgrimage to Paray-le-Monial, home of our patron, St. Margaret Mary, Lyon, Ars, Florence, Pisa, Assisi and Rome was a wonderful experience for our 29 pilgrims. We prayed at the tombs of St. Margaret Mary, St. Claude Columbiere, St. John Vianney, St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Francis, St. Clare, St. Peter, St. Paul, Blessed John XXIII and Blessed John Paul II. We were privileged to celebrate Mass in these beautiful sites and to have an audience with His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI. We also experienced the great food and wine of France and Italy. It was a wonderful way to end our 75th Anniversary Year!
