Pilgrims had an opportunity to pray in the place of the apparitions of Blessed Virgin Mary in Lourdes. At the Shrine, the group attended Mass in the Grotto of the apparitions celebrated by Father Chilczuk. Then they flew to Italy where they had a chance to visit Padua and the tomb of St. Anthony, Venice, Turin and the birthplace of St. John Bosco, and Milan, concluding with a Mass in the Cathedral of Milan “il Duomo.” Above, the group is shown at St. Mark’s Cathedral, Venice.
