Here are some upcoming tours and pilgrimages that Saint Meinrad alumni are welcome to join. Saint Meinrad’s Br. Maurus Zoeller, OSB, is the tour host.


It is with great pleasure and excitement that I invite you to join me on a spiritually inspiring pilgrimage to Poland and Eastern Europe. And to top it all off, we have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to attend the world famous Passion Play in 2020 in Oberammergau, Germany.

The villagers of Oberammergau first performed the play in 1634 in fulfillment of their promise to God for sparing them from the Black Plague, and it has been presented there every 10 years since then.

In addition to our time spent in Oberammergau, we will experience the great Old World cities of Poland, Krakow and Warsaw. Many of us can trace our heritage to these countries, perhaps of our grandparents or great-grandparents. In Budapest and Prague, we will find castles, cathedrals and picturesque landscapes that will make both medieval and modern history come alive.

The price of our tour includes round-trip airfare, first class/select hotels and guest houses in Oberammergau, most meals, admission tickets for the Passion Play, the services of a professional tour director and sightseeing in a deluxe motorcoach.

Join us May 12 – 22, 2020. Cost is just $3,995 from New York, which includes $450 taxes and airline surcharges. Click here for all the details, and send your deposit of $200 per person to me soon so you can be assured of a space on this wonderful pilgrimage.
