FRANCE

France is a unique destination that is rich in faith, culture, and culinary traditions.







Notre Dame, the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, and the town of Lisieux – home to St. Therese, the origins of the Sacred Heart devotion, Chartres Cathedral, St. John Vianney, and countless other key moments, locations, and people are woven together in a beautiful tapestry that makes up the Catholic history of France.

Our spiritual journey begins as we depart on our transatlantic flight to Paris. Meals and drinks will be served aloft.
