Italy & the Adriatic | September 27-October 6, 2018


This amazing adventure begins in St. Peter’s Basilica where you will witness the ordination of our fourth-year seminarians to the Diaconate. A grand celebration luncheon will follow at the Seminary campus.

The next day, our group will board a high-speed train to Venice for an overnight stay and private Mass with our rector, Very Rev. Peter Harman. We’ll enjoy a fabulous dinner together in one of Italy’s most special cities.

From there, we board the ultra-luxury Seabourn Odyssey cruise ship (named the “Best Small-Ship Cruise Line” for 2016 by Conde Nast Traveler) and set sail for an incredible voyage. Stops include Croatia, Montenegro, the Bay of Kator, and the best of Greece’s western coast: Corfu, Nydri, Sparta, and Nafplion. We will conclude in Athens, from which guests will fly home.

Our small group will enjoy a variety of private and special experiences throughout the trip, from daily Mass and spiritual conferences offered by Very Rev. Harman, to exclusive day trips and sights at the various ports of call.
