Dear fellow pilgrims,
Whew! What a few months it has been. Things have really taken shape around here as we are working on our first projects and collaborating with several parishes, schools, and dioceses around the country. Our Lichon family recently embarked upon a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, which was filled with many blessings and a lot of good stories!
As this Easter season is upon us, I wanted to take some time to provide some Verso Ministries updates.
A full season of pilgrimage opportunities are available, with options for our Hawaii, Holy Spirits, and Holy Land Pilgrimages coming up this summer and fall. Limited room on each pilgrimage is still available, so act fast before your spot is booked. Our Holy Week in Rome Pilgrimage is also open for registrations as well. You know, if you’re already looking forward to Lent 2018!
Plans are underway for a France Pilgrimage to commemorate Blessed Basil Moreau’s (founder of the Congregation of Holy Cross) 10th Anniversary of his beatification, as well as a “How Great Thou Arts” pilgrimage for young adults in Washington, D.C. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter (see below) which will keep you informed of all the latest opportunities. Plus, there’s some exclusive perks for signing up!
When launching this blog, I had high hopes to produce regular content, which clearly has not happened as often as I had hoped. For that, I apologize. However, I am excited to share that throughout this Easter season we will be sharing weekly stories, submitted by several guest contributors. Each Friday during the Easter season, I will publish a new story about the pilgrimage of life on the “Verso L’Alto” blog.
Finally, I want to hear from you! I’ve posted a survey, and I’d like to get your feedback. Each person who submits the survey before 11:59 p.m. on Friday, April 28, will be entered to win a Verso Ministries water bottle or olive wood cross from the Holy Land (your choice!). And this is not just some generic water bottle, this is bottle is fierce. It keeps your drink hot for 12 hours or cold for 24. There are 5 prizes available, so your chances are pretty good that you might win one. Anyways, enough about the swag, I’m just grateful for your support and input. So thank you for taking some time to fill out my survey!
Me and my dad at the Jordan River.
Overall, it is with great gratitude and humility that I write today. May God bless you each and every day as we walk this journey of faith together.
