Pilgrimage to the Holy Land: Fr. Babiczuk, Fr Reis from St. Andrew's in Taunton, and Fr. Andrade from St. Louis de France in Swansea will be leading a 10 day Pilgrimage to the Holy Land from April 19 to 28 of 2015. Many no doubt have wondered if the trip is on with "The Troubles" in the Gaza strip over the Summer. The most recent peace accord is holding, and the trip is on. We have 20 sign up already despite the "Troubles" which is a good sign. Please see our website for more information about the trip: rabpilgrimages.weebly.com. You can print the Itinerary with Registration Form by clicking here and bring it to one of the priests, or you can book on line at Unitours (using a credit card) by clicking here.
