Join us on a Pilgrimage to the Vineyards of Old Mission Peninsula near Traverse City, MI, with Fr. James Conlon. We leave at 7:15 a.m. on Tuesday, September 12 and return on Wednesday, September 13 at 10:30 p.m.
Our pilgrimage to the vineyards of Old Mission Peninsula promises to deepen our understanding of our Lord’s references to the vineyard, “I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit (John 15:5)” and includes Mass, Scripture to Life Experiences, Renewal of Wedding Vows, and other spiritual and educational opportunities. We’ll stop by a few vineyards and spend some time enjoying the Grape to Glass wine tour. Come experience the Vineyard as seen through the eyes of Faith.
Cost is $225/person or $425/couple. Our price includes overnight lodging, bus, tours with 2 full wine tastings (additional wine tastings are on your own, usually $5-7 for 5 tastings), 2 lunches and breakfast. Please pay for your own dinners.
