The pilgrimage will be held Oct. 10-20, and pilgrims will visit the shrines of Fatima in Portugal, Avila and Loyola in Spain, Lourdes in France and Medjugorje in Croatia. Pilgrims will depart from and return to Syracuse Hancock International Airport and will be accompanied by Father Roy Kiggins, resident priest at St. Francis and St. Clare Parish in Waterloo and Seneca Falls.

The tour cost of $3,200 per person and includes all travel, daily breakfasts and dinners, and daily Mass at the shrines, as well as hotel accommodations in a double room.
