With many changes to the institution of marriage in the last few decades, the task of preparing couples for happy lives together has become increasingly difficult. It remains important for priests to evangelize, to catechize, and to equip the next generation for the task at hand, all with an eye to the particular challenges presented by the culture-at-large. In this conference, we’ll consider the future of marriage from theological, scientific, and pastoral perspectives, seeking to lay the groundwork for a holy Church and happy families.
Join Holy Apostles’ Alumnus Shaun McAfee along with Jonathan Blevins, and your spiritual chaplain Fr. Anthony Sciarappa to the many Holy sites of Portugal and Spain!
The Camino of St. James has a rich pilgrimage tradition, as does the Sanctuary and site of Our Lady of Fatima. These are two of Spain’s most popular pilgrimage destinations, but there are numerous others and some well-kept secrets, too. The “bleeding host” of St. Steven’s Church in Santarem, the Abbey of Santa María la Real de Las Huelgas, and the Basilica of the Pillar in Zaragoza remain the region’s most cherished places for religious renewal and respite, offering pilgrims the chance of a lifetime to walk in the footsteps of the saints and the Catholic Faith.
Travelers will have no stress as the itinerary will include professional tour guides, excellent lodging, deluxe stagecoach, breakfast and dinner, admissions, and round trip transportation from JFK (or other city upon request) are all included in the package. The entire event is managed and directed by Canterbury Pilgrimages, the most trusted name in Catholic pilgrimages.

______________________________________________________________________________________ Nancy E. Martin, MA in Theology, 2013, just released a new book on July 1, 2019 called, Servant of God Gwen Coniker: God Leads, Faith and Trust Follow. This compelling story is an inspiration and example to others of how to live a holy and faithful marriage in a world where marriage has been diminished, where life was chosen in a world where life is no longer valued, all in the midst of the trials of raising 12 living children and founding and running an Apostolate to catechize others in the faith so as to lead others toward their heavenly home.
Nancy Martin is a wife and mother of five who has a passion for the Catholic Faith. She has developed and led many varied ministerial efforts and has taught classes on Consecration to Our Lady via the St. Louis de Montfort charism both online and in the classroom.
______________________________________________ Let us join together in wishing Jennifer and Nancy a warm congratulations. Congratulations! You are both in our prayers.
