Journey to the Holy Land with St. Angela Merici

Join Mary Jane Fox and Nan Balfour, as they guide us through a pilgrimage to the Holy Land unlike the ones of today; but like the ones, many faithful pilgrims took in the middle ages! Our journey will be with a woman who lived during the same time as St. Ignatius of Loyola. She was born in Italy in the late 15th century, and her name is Angela Merici. This woman, now a canonized saint, was an incredibly strong woman of faith and courage. St. Angela Merici is the founder of the Order of Nuns called the Ursulines and made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land as well.

During our journey, you will:

  • Learn about the life of St. Angela Merici
  • Discover what the pilgrimage experience was like during St. Angela’s time.
  • Gain some insight into discerning God’s Will through the example of St. Angela Merici
  • … much more!

Jewel for the Journey:

“Do not lose heart, even if you should discover that you lack qualities necessary for the work to which you are called. He who called you will not desert you, but the moment you are in need he will stretch out his saving hand.” – St. Angela Merici
