ERIN GO BRAGH! As you know, the parish is sponsoring a journey to Ireland this coming October. I wanted to take a few moments today to say a few words about this trip and hope that you can join us on the journey.

As you may know, Ireland has so much to offer. It is a stunningly beautiful country. I’ll never forget the first time that I visited Ireland and as the plane was coming in for a landing and we dropped below the clouds, you immediately know why they call Ireland the Emerald Isle – the beautiful green landscape is breathtaking. We will visit some of the most beautiful areas of the country during our trip – including the Cliffs of Moher, Inch Beach, and the beautiful Dingle Peninsula.

It is also a tremendously historic place. It is well-known for its ancient castles, some of which we will tour (yes, including Blarney Castle!). Ireland also boasts even more ancient ruins like the Stone Age burial tombs at Newgrange, and the famous “bog men” – Iron Age mummified people that you can see in Dublin museums.

There is a wonderful history of Christianity there as well. Ireland has been a Christian country since the year 432 AD, and continues today to be one of the most Catholic nations. We will see sights that were important in the life of St. Patrick, as well as visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Knock, where the Blessed Mother appeared in 1879. We’ll also get a bit of the Franciscan flavor of Ireland as the Franciscans have been present in Ireland since 1229.

And of course, all along the way we’ll have wonderful food (Ireland has experienced something of a culinary revolution over the last decade or so), good drink, wonderful song, and a really wonderful time together.

As you know, the trip costs $3,335. This price includes everything but a few lunches along the way. I can tell you that this is a great price. The last time that I lead a group the cost was almost $1,000 more.

I promise that this will be the trip of a lifetime, and I hope you can join us. A deposit of $300 is due by the end of May to secure your place. Visit our parish website or talk to me for more information.

Peace, love,
and prayers,

Fr. Tom
