Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

At the end of the month, we will reduce unsold seats so signing up after that could cost more, so don't delay!

We have a pre-tour option to Belfast with a "Making Modern-day Disciples" Seminar with Jeff, sponsored by the Down and Connor Diocese, where we will meet the local Catholics there and fellowship with them.

Fr. Matt Guckin will be the spiritual director! He is an amazing preacher and full of insights.

We are really excited about the Ireland Pilgrimage in April as we will be joined by Fr. Matt Guckin from Philadelphia who not only is Irish but connects so well with each pilgrim. We have several people signed up to go who have traveled to the Holy Land at one time or another with us so that will add a unique dimension as well. If you've ever wanted to see the beauty of Ireland, this is a great opportunity. See more details here.

"A Journey through the Bible" Class

It has been several years, but Jeff will once again be teaching locally in the Twin City area. He will be presenting an 8-week "Journey through the Bible" at St. John the Baptist in New Brighton, Minnesota! This class is open to all and offered through the Catechetical Institute. Tell your friends and sign up together!

Course Description: "A Journey through the Bible"

This eight-part Life Skills course provides the easiest way to understand the Bible, helping you uncover the story woven throughout Scripture so that you can get the “big picture” of the Bible and understand what it is all about. "A Journey through the Bible", taught by Jeff Cavins, meets every Thursday from Oct. 5 - Nov. 30 from 7pm to 9pm at St. John the Baptist in New Brighton and utilizes the "Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible" materials while tying in the teachings of the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

CI Offering Open to All!

If you've never gone through the Bible Timeline, you won't want to pass up this opportunity. If you went through it years ago, you'll be amazed at how much more the scriptures come to life now that you have made the journey through the Catechism. This Life Skills course, taught by Jeff Cavins, is open to all. Start praying today about who you can invite to join you this fall on this great adventure!
