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.
Coming November 2018 : Holy Land Pilgrimage
A journey to the Holy Land is a spiritual Pilgrimage that every Christian should make at least once in a lifetime. There, the Bible comes alive with a new richness . . . there you can stand with Jesus on the Mount of Olives . . . walk with Him along the Via Dolorosa.
And to share this spiritual experience with other Christians is an even more enriching deed. It creates a unique fellowship. It is a journey that is to be treasured forever. Now is the time to make this dream, this “trip of a lifetime” a reality for you.
Join us November 10 - 19, 2018. Cost is just $3,429 from New York, which includes $700 taxes and airline surcharges. Click Here for all the details, and send your deposit of $400 per person to me soon so you can be assured of a space on this wonderful Pilgrimage.
Coming January 2019: Benedictine Pilgrimage to Egypt and The Great Nile Cruise
For those who have not actually been to Egypt, this January 14th to 24th, 2019 pilgrimage presents a wonderful opportunity to visit the massive Great Pyramids and the Sphinx, sole survivors of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and the Valley of the Kings where Tut-Ankh-Amon’s tomb was discovered.
Egypt is the setting for many well-known Biblical events and personages, Abraham, Jacob, the Twelve Tribes of Israel, the Exodus under Moses, Jesus and the Holy Family, are all part of Egypt’s ancient history

Coming May 2020: PILGRIMAGE TO POLAND, PRAGUE AND GERMANY
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 with a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend the world famous Passion Play in 2020 in Oberammergau, Germany. The villagers of Ober-ammergau 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 have the opportunity to experience the great Old World cities of Poland and Eastern Europe. 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 roundtrip 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.
