“Everything was fantastic! The Guide was excellent, the hotels were wonderful and the meals were superb! We felt completely safe. Except for Ukrainian flags flying next to the Polish flags, there was no sign that there was a war going on in the neighboring country. There were no refugees that we could tell in the shrines and places we visited and my Permanent Deacon and I were able to concelebrate the Divine Mercy Feast Day Mass at the Shrine with Archbishop Marek Jędraszewski. Thank you for offering me this opportunity.”

Our thanks to you for making our trip to Poland so memorable.
We thought that the hotels that we stayed at were excellent. Father Doyle did an outstanding job of being “ Our Shepherd.” Our tour guide Magdalena was outstanding and I will forward you the photos that she recently sent to us. One recommendation –if you can arrange to fly from New Orleans to Frankfort and then to Poland so that there would only be two legs to the flight instead of three that would be a major plus.
Again thanks for all your help and give our best.
