Aquinas Institute President, Fr. Richard A. Peddicord, O.P., will lead a pilgrimage to France October 28 – November 5, 2008. Fluent in French, Father Peddicord looks forward to sharing his love and knowledge of France’s spiritual heritage with fellow pilgrims, and will celebrate Mass for the travel group throughout the trip.
In honor of the 150th anniversary of Mary’s apparition to Bernadette Soubirous, travelers will visit Lourdes, Toulouse (site of St. Thomas Aquinas’ grave), Carcassonne (fortified city where St. Dominic preached against the Albigensian heresy), Prouille (where Dominicans celebrated their 800th anniversary), Lisieux (sites associated with Saint Therese of the Child Jesus), and Paris (Notre Dame Cathedral, Rue de Bac, and historical sites associated with Saints Vincent de Paul, Louise de Marillac, Catherine Labouré, Rosalie, and Blessed Frederic Ozanam).
