Day 1 - USA - Warsaw
Depart USA for your overnight flight(s) to Warsaw. Dinner and breakfast will be served on board.

Day 2 - Warsaw

Upon arrival in Warsaw you will find your luggage and exit the baggage claim into the arrivals hall where you will be greeted by your tour escort and/or driver. After a warm welcome to Poland, you will be escorted to the vehicle which will take you to your hotel. We begin our pilgrimage with Mass at St. James Church, where St. Faustina went when she arrived in Warsaw. This evening enjoy a show and a delicious welcome dinner at a local restaurant. Following dinner you may explore or relax before retiring for the evening.

Day 3 - Warsaw
After breakfast, we visit all the landmarks of Warsaw: Old Town, Market Square, the Barbican, the Warsaw Ghetto monument, Lazienki Park, the Chopin statue, and the magnificently restored Royal Castle. We will visit and celebrate Mass at 39 Zytnia Street where Faustina entered the convent. Following a day of sightseeing we return to our hotel for dinner and a restful overnight.

Day 4 - Warsaw - Swinice Warckie - Niepokalanow - Czestochowa
After breakfast, we travel to Swince Warckie to visit the parish church St. Casimir where St. Faustina was baptized as Helen Kowalska. We continue to Niepokalanow where we will see a Franciscan Monastery founded by St. Maximillian Kolbe. We arrive in Czestochowa, the home of the greatest pilgrimage shrine in Poland - Our Lady of Czestochowa. We enjoy dinner at our hotel before retiring for the evening.

Day 5 - Czestochowa - Wadowice - Zakopane
We begin our day with Mass at Jasna Gora Monastery where the picture of the Black Madonna is located. We will have time to explore the most important places of religious worship. The monastery has a pilgrimage tradition that goes back to the 14th-century. St. Pope John Paul II was known to make frequent visits to the monastery throughout his life. We will have time to venerate the priceless treasures contained within, including the Miraculous Icon. We continue on to Zakopane, with a stop along the way in Wadowice, the birthplace of Karol Wojtyla (St. Pope John Paul II) and see the church he attended and was baptized as a child. This afternoon, we arrive in the resort village of Zakopane, where we will take a cable car ride to the nearby mountaintop for extraordinary views. We arrive at the hotel in time for dinner and a restful overnight.

Day 6 - Zakopane - Krakow
This morning we will visit the Jaszczorowka Chapel in Zakopane which has been visited several times by young Karol Wojtyla (St. Pope John Paul II), as it lies on the walking paths where he often finished his walks for prayer and reflection. We then make our way to the colorful Krupowki Street for some last minute shopping in the local bazaar. We will stop at the amazing Wieliczka Salt Mines on our way to Krakow. We arrive in Krakow in time for dinner, after which you may enjoy a short stroll in the old city before retiring for the evening.

Day 7 - Krakow - Auschwitz - Krakow
After breakfast, we explore Krakow's Market Square and hear the silver trumpet of the bugler from St. Mary's Tower. The surroundings of the square have remained unchanged for almost 700 years and contain buildings of historic value such as the Town Hall Tower, the Cloth Hall and the burgher's houses. We will tour the Cathedral, Coronation Chapel and the Royal Chambers where a superb collection of Arras tapestries are on display. We visit the Cathedral where we may pray before the extraordinary Wit Stwosz altar. In the afternoon we will visit Auschwitz, the notorious Nazi concentration camp where unspeakable atrocities occurred. We will see the cell that imprisoned St. Maximillian Kolbe and the Martyrdom Museum recalling the horrors of the Holocaust. We return to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 8 - Krakow – Divine Mercy - Lagiewniki - Krakow
After breakfast, we depart for our day's excursion to Lagiewniki, the capital of the Divine Mercy. It was here that the message of the Divine Mercy originated, which Christ Himself wished to pass on to our generation through the mediation of St. Faustina. The Sanctuary houses grace working images of the Merciful Jesus and the relics of St. Faustina. As we view the Shrine of Divine Mercy we will see St. Faustina's convent chapel and her Tomb. We will visit the newly constructed Shrine of Divinity dedicated by St. Pope John Paul II on his last visit to Poland in 2002. We celebrate Mass at the Shrine before we visit the new center "Have no Fear" where we pray by the relic of St. Pope John Paul II. We will have time to pray and reflect before returning to our hotel for dinner and overnight.

Day 9 - Krakow - USA
Following breakfast, we leave Krakow for our return flight(s) home. We will bid farewell to our new friends and to a Pilgrimage which will be in our memories and hearts for a long time to come!
