“Poland is the birthplace of St. John Paul II, who was pope for 27 years. He’s a saint, a beloved figure, and to see where he lived, grew up and the country that formed him is an inspiration for all of us. Poland and Hungry are really the two places in Europe where the faith has remained strong, despite persecution and communism. To be able to see that vibrant faith is a wonderful thing.” - Fr. John Girotti
Some of the trip’s highlights include a stop at Poland’s Jasna Gora, the Marian shrine that is home of the Black Madonna icon, also known as Our Lady of Czestochowa; Wadowice, Poland, birthplace of St. John Paul II; the salt mines of Wieliczka, Poland; and Auschwitz, Poland, home of the World War II Nazi concentration camp.
