July 19: Morning departure (see airports below) for our flight to Mexico City. On arrival, we will meet our tour guide and on our way to the hotel we will visit the largest cathedral in all of Latin America, the Metropolitan Cathedral. Throughout your time in the cathedral, you will see stunning paintings, altar pieces and statues as well as the Tomb of Bishop Zumarraga. Bishop Zumarraga was the first Bishop of Mexico and was a witness to the vision of our Lady of Guadalupe. Next, we will view (from the outside) the National Palace, the Main Square known as the Zócalo and the Great Pyramid of Tenochtitlán known as the Templo Mayor. Tonight we will gather for a welcome dinner and orientation meeting. Overnight Mexico City
July 20: Today we visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe, “The Patroness of the Americas.” We have Mass in the brilliantly-colored, modern Basilica dedicated in 1976. Join your prayers with those of other pilgrims as you kneel before the altar displaying the astounding Tilma, the sackcloth bearing the image of the Holy Virgin. We will also visit the Church of the Hill, Church of the Well, Monument of the Offerings and Church of the Indians. Afterwards there will be leisure time to visit the shrine, followed by dinner.

In route we will see two magnificent mountain peaks; one that is covered with snow and the other that is an active volcano. Upon arrival in Tlaxcala, we will visit the Shrine of San Miguel Del Milagro where St. Michael the Archangel appeared to Diego Lazaro in 1631. Next, we will visit Puebla to visit St. Dominic’s Church, and its Chapel of Our Lady of the Rosary. These Baroque styled structures are known for its walls and dome, that are covered in gold leaf and plaster. The next visit in Puebla is at the Church of St. Francis of Assisi where you will view the incorrupt body of St. Sebastian of Aparicio. While exploring the quaint streets of Puebla’s historic downtown, we will visit the oldest public library in the Americas the Biblioteca Palafoxiana.
