Pilgrimage of a Lifetime to Carmelite Spain

Pilgrimage Video


In this video, I discuss what I have been calling a “Dream Pilgrimage” to Spain to see the land of Sts. Teresa of Avila, John of Avila, John of the Cross, and Peter of Alcántara. The trip will be November 16th to 25th, 2017 and there are still spots available.

I am excited to have the opportunity to invite you to come on this incredible pilgrimage of a lifetime to Carmelite Spain with Dr. Anthony Lilles and myself in November. We will be visiting places where many saints including St. Teresa of Avila, John of the Cross, John of Avila, and Peter of Alcantara all walked. These saints helped to bring me into the Church and have inspired countless others throughout the years. We will visit the land of the saints who inspire much of what we do at the Avila Foundation. The pilgrimage to Spain will be prayerful and will be guided by talks from Dr. Lilles and myself to help you get the most out of your experience.
