Mexico City, Puebla & Veracruz Pilgrimage
Moderate – High
My Dear Friends in Christ,
Please join me on “The Enchantment of Mexico” where we will travel to Mexico City and visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe and some museums including La Casa Azul. We will see the city of Puebla and then go to the shores of Veracruz. It will be a delight to experience the culture, music, dances, foods and of course the spiritual life of the Catholic Church in this wonderful country. You don’t want to miss this chance to grow closer to Christ on this wonderful pilgrimage. Sign up early before it fills up.
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. John Trambley
