Alpine European Pilgrimage

Alpine European Pilgrimage In the footsteps of Blessed Seelos

Join Fr. Rich Boever, C.Ss.R., director of the National Shrine of Blessed Francis Xavier Seelos, on a journey through Fr. Seelos’ native lands. 

11 DAYS: SEPTEMBER 6 – 16, 2022


Featuring the Passion Play of Oberammergau

The pilgrimage brochure urges our participants to register before July 31, 2021 because the tickets for the Oberammergau Passion Play are in great demand. You may register for the trip after the suggested date but the best seats for the play will be made available on a first-come, first-served basis and the travel agent can’t guarantee the best seats after that date.

Fr. Rich Boever, C.Ss.R.Dear Friends,

Our pilgrimage offers us the opportunity to experience the homeland of Blessed Francis Seelos as well as the beautiful places in Bavaria, Switzerland and Austria which he knew before coming to America. On this trip, we will also take in the famous Oberammergau Passion Play. It promises to be a wonderful time. Space is limited so sign up early!


Fr. Rich Boever, C.Ss.R.
