 Pilgrimage to India Pilgrimage to India

Pilgrimage to India – January 7-24, 2015 – For thousands of years spiritual seekers have been drawn to the vibrant energy of India. Now there is an opportunity to explore India on a pilgrimage led by Fr. Joe Mitchell, CP. A pilgrimage is significantly different from a tour. Our focus is not primarily on tourist attractions, but on experiencing the spiritual vitality and daily life of India from within. We stay at traditional ashrams, meet resident spiritual teachers, explore exotic temples, connect with Passionist ministries in remote villages, visit local families, and dine on regional foods. Registration is limited. 

January 7 - 24, 2015
