Pilgrimages are times of prayer, shared experiences, reflections and retreat which focus our attention on “the one thing that is necessary (Luke 10:42).”
Our pilgrimage to the vineyards of Old Mission Peninsula focuses on deepening our understanding of our Lord's references to the vineyard, "I am the vine, you are the branches. Whoever remains in me and I in him will bear much fruit (John 15:5)" and will includes Mass, Scripture to Life Experiences, Renewal of Wedding Vows, and other spiritual and educational opportunities. Tours from grape to glass of the vineyard and wine tastings will also take place.
