Pilgrimage to Fatima and Italy with the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings
July 17 - 27, 2017
It is my pleasure to personally invite you on a pilgrimage of a lifetime! 100 years ago, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three young children in the village of Fatima, Portugal, exhorting them to pray for the conversion of sinners. These apparitions were very quickly confirmed by a miracle that was witnessed by 70,000 people--believers and unbelievers alike. The Fatima message is as pertinent today as it was 100 years ago, so I invite you to please join me in the footsteps of these three saintly children at the feet of Our Lady of Fatima as we discover the urgency of Her message and experience the breadth and beauty of the Catholic Church. -Fr. Garrett Nelson

CAST Pilgrimage to Fatima and Rome
Oct. 17 - 26, 2017
What you now know as CAST today, was a mere idea two years ago; an idea that took root in the hearts of three seminarians – now all priests – while they studied in Rome. CAST would now like to invite you to pilgrimage back with them - the first time they will be returning as a team since they left - to see the sights that inspired them, to walk the streets and sit in the piazzas where they discussed ideas, to visit the Churches they prayed for the grace to carry out this work. Yet, that's not it: in honor of the Centenary of our Lady of Fatima's apparitions, CAST also plans to make a stop in Fatima on their way to the Eternal City. Join CAST for this unique experience: a team of colleagues and friends, fluent in Italian, as well as the culture's mannerisms and eccentricities, as they pilgrimage to these holy places during historical moments in the life of the Church. —Fr. George Elliot
