The Abbey of Gethsemani, the Trappist monastery where Thomas Merton was a monk, is nestled in the heart of the Bourbon Trail, the historical epicenter of bourbon production. Come renew your spirit on this young adult pilgrimage which will explore the intersection of faith and culture, sacred and profane, spiritual and physical refreshment.
Registration fee includes transportation from South Bend/Fort Wayne, lodging, preparation materials, activities, and most meals. Must be at least 21 years old to participate.
Bishop Rhoades is leading a diocesan pilgrimage to World Youth Day! The official WYD age range is 16-35 years old, so it's really World "Young Adult" Day.
Although registration is closed, please pray for our group, which will be embarking on this epic journey to gather with Pope Francis and a few million of our brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world!
