OUTSIDE THE BOX

Every pilgrimage is a unique experience, but some travelers enjoy a journey which is even more unique than the rest.

Our Outside the Box offerings are designed for travelers such as those.

SHRINES AND STEINS

Cistercian Monks and Nuns in Belgium live in their communities in silence, dedicated to poverty, chastity, and obedience, and are afforded few luxuries in life. But one of the luxuries they are allowed is beer, and do they do it well. Since the 1500s the Cistercians have been brewing beer in Belgium and continue that tradition today in 6 thriving monasteries. Whether it is in Belgium or Germany we invite you to explore the Catholic roots of our faith and enjoy a good libation. Prost!

WINES AND SHRINES

In both Italy and France the monastic tradition of wine-making has historic ties to various communities, for some as long as 900 years. The making and selling of wine helps support countless religious communities who create wine not just for consumption but also for use in the Holy Mass.

HOLY WEEK, HOLY LAND

Imagine spending Holy Week in the very places where the Biblical events took place. Walk the Palm Sunday Road on Palm Sunday. Pray in the Upper Room where Jesus instituted the Eucharist. Pray in the Garden of Gethsemane where Christ underwent his Agony, kneel at his tomb and be witness to his resurrection, all during the most holy week of the Church calendar.

LOUGH DERG

Known as “Patrick’s Purgatory” this challenging pilgrimage can be added to any journey to Ireland. Upon arriving on the island of Lough Derg, take your shoes and socks off, and for three days eat minimal food as you enter into an intense spiritual exercise which includes Mass, Confession and self-denial as you strive for knowledge of self and – moreover – knowledge of God.

SACRED MUSIC

The beauty of sacred music can transform liturgy, enabling us to imagine our worship united with the choirs of angels in Heaven. Combine your exploration of sacred music with a pilgrimage in the footsteps of St. Pope Gregory the Great, learning the history of chant, or travel to the small village outside Rome where one of the giants of sacred music, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, grew up.
