Meet us in New Mexico for 5 days in some of Santa Fe's most beautiful Catholic Churches and Shrines! Santa Fe is Spanish for "Holy Faith" making it the perfect destination for an American Pilgrimage. Visit the Loretto Chapel, a former Roman Catholic church that is now a museum. You will see the Miraculous Stairway, whose construction the Sisters of Loretto attribute to the work of St. Joseph. In Chimayo, located west of the Sangre de Cristo ("Blood of Christ") Mountains, see the Shrine of Our Lord of Esquipulas. This Shrine is also referred to as the "Lourdes of America" because pilgrims have reported healings from the Holy Dirt here. Celebrate Mass at the Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi, the mother church for the Archdiocese of Santa Fe. Visit Acoma Pueblo, the oldest pueblo in the United States, to discover the rich history of Native American culture! Visit the extremely well preserved San Jose de la Laguna Mission and Convent built in 1699 which is dedicated to Saint Joseph.

Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive Santa Fe

Upon arrival, meet driver for your transfer to the hotel for check in. Enjoy some free time, this evening meet your group in the lobby of your hotel for a movie, Mass and dinner.

Day 2: Loretto Chapel - Abiquiu (Benedictine Monastery)

Following breakfast at the hotel, our first stop will be at the Loretto Chapel with the Miraculous Staircase of St. Joseph. The Chapel is a former Roman Catholic Church that is now used as a museum. The Sisters of Loretto credited St. Joseph with its construction. It has been the subject of legend, and the circumstances surrounding its construction and its builder were considered miraculous by the Sisters of Loretto. The Miraculous Staircase was built by a mysterious carpenter that no one has ever seen, but Sisters of Loreto claimed that it was St. Joseph. It is said that the entire construction of it is simply "impossible." It was built without any nails or glue, it lacks any central support and according to many, it should have collapsed the very first moment someone used it. We will continue to Abiquiu, a small town located in northern New Mexico. Abiquiu means "wild choke cherry place" in the Tewa language. The community is also called Santo Tomas de Abiquiu and the Pueblo of Santo Tomas de Abiquiu. While here we will visit the Benedictine Monastery of Christ in the Desert. From its beginnings, the monastery has followed the Benedictine life according to the Rule of St. Benedict with no external apostolates. Return to Santa Fe, for dinner at a local restaurant for dinner. Hotel for overnight.

Day 3: Santa Fe (Santuario de Guadalupe, San Miguel Mission and the Cathedral Basilica of St Francis of Assisi)

We will have breakfast at the hotel and proceed to our visit of Cristo Rey Church. Next, we continue to Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis of Assisi for Mass. The Cathedral of Saint Francis of Assisi was officially elevated to a Basilica by Pope Benedict XVI on October 4, 2005. Following Mass, we will enjoy lunch on our own. Then, we will visit and explore San Miguel Mission. San Miguel Mission was established on July 25, 1797, by the Franciscan order. "The Oldest Church" in the continental United States is a site chosen specifically due to the large number of Salinan Indians who inhabited the area, whom the Spanish priests wanted to evangelize. Our group will walk to Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe which is one of the most historic Catholic Shrines in Santa Fe. Upon our return to the hotel, we will stop at the cross of martyrs. Enjoy dinner at a local restaurant and overnight at the hotel.

Day 4: Santa Fe - Chimayo (El Santuario de Chimayo, Santo Nino Chapel)- Albuquerque (Old Town Tour)

Following breakfast at the hotel, we will proceed to Chimayo for our visit to El Santuario De Chimayo, also known as "the Lourdes of the Americas" and famous for its "Holy Dirt". It is here that we will celebrate Mass and pray beside the "The Shrine of the Lord of Esquipulas" and the hole containing the Holy Dirt. Next, we will visit Santo Nino (Holy Child) Chapel and Our Lady of La Vang statue located outside near the river. Next we travel to Albuquerque. San Felipe de Neri Church. It is a historic Catholic Church built in 1793, one of the oldest surviving buildings in the city and the only building in Old Town proven to date to the Spanish colonial period. We will have a walking tour of the Old Town. The day will conclude with dinner and overnight at the hotel.

Day 5: Santa Fe (El Rancho de las Golondrinas)

After breakfast at the hotel we will visit El Rancho de las Golondrinas Museum. El Rancho de las Golondrinas strives to maintain examples of life during the period when Spain ruled in the southwestern portion of the North and most of the Central American continent. The museum opened in 1972 and is dedicated to the history, heritage and culture of 18th and 19th Century New Mexico. Guides are dressed in period clothing and demonstrate weaving, hide tanning, milling, blacksmithing and the planting of crops. We will then return to Cathedral Basilica of St. Francis Assisi for Mass. Following Mass, we will enjoy lunch then visit the Georgia O'Keeffe museum commemorating her life. Georgia O'Keeffe was an American artist. She was known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of American Modernism." We will end our time in New Mexico with a walking tour of Santa Fe and farewell dinner.
