Following Saint Faustina

Sister Faustina Kowalska was one of the most inspiring saints of the 20th century. Your church probably contains the Divine Mercy image depicting Jesus in a white robe according to St. Faustina’s visions. You might have read her powerful Diary or pray the Chaplet of the Divine Mercy. This unique tour not only provides ample opportunity to follow in her steps, but also to explore Poland and optionally also Lithuania in an unforgettable way.

The tour is perfectly suited for groups undertaking a private or parish pilgrimage. Upon request we can modify the program also for independent travellers.
