The Pilgrimage Begins
      On Tuesday night, October 28th, Frs. John Martin Shimkus and Damien Gjonaj will be heading to the airport to begin a pilgrimage with 23 of our Oblates and friends.  The destination of the journey will be Italy where the group will visit sites in Rome, Assisi, Montacassino and Florence.  A special focus will be the places that were significant in the life of St. Benedict.  The daily Mass will be celebrated as a means of blessing each dayís activities.  One highlight (among many) will be the groupís attendance at the General Papal Audience.  The 10 day pilgrimage will end on November 7th.  Please pray for the safety of Frs. John Martin, Damien and the rest of the pilgrims and that their journey will most of all be a faith-filled, inspirational experence.
