Three Shrines

June 23 @ 8:30 am - 5:00 pm

Investigate a powerhouse of personalities. Our three destinations are shrines to outstanding yet contrasting leaders with divergent paths with the same destiny. We will also stop for lunch at a very popular “more-than-you-can eat” Chicago delicatessen established in 1942.  Can you guess our stops? (answers at the bottom):

A. The Columbus Hospital chapel-turned National Shrine of a diminutive Italian woman who exercised her claim that she could “do all things through Christ”.  Museum and gift shop also available.

B. Situated on 40 acres and includes the Carmelite Spiritual Center, Garden, Gift shop, Museum and Chapel. The museum collection is the largest outside Lisieux, France, and features photographs of the saint, paintings, and relics.

C. “Mother Church” of Northside Poles named for a young Polish Jesuit-in-training

Tickets: $38

Coach transportation included from 6335 N Hoyne Ave. Chicago 60659. Lunch and gift shops on your own.

ANSWERS:  A. National Shrine of St Francis Cabrini  B. National Shrine of St Therese of Lisieux,   C. Shrine of Divine Mercy/a.k.a. St Stanislaw Kostka
