Oberammergau 2020




Dear Friends:

I couldn’t be more excited to present this opportunity for you to join me on a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage to Bavaria and Austria. The pilgrimage has been planned specifically to include a very special highlight; the 42nd world-famous Passion Play which takes place every ten years in Oberammergau! The history of the Passion Play dates back to 1633. In the middle of the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the Oberammergau villagers swore an oath that they would perform the “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ” every ten years. Every ten years since then, the villagers fulfill their promise to God. What a tremendous and unique way for us to unite our own spiritual journey with this extraordinary tradition of faith. This spiritual journey promises to be uplifting and inspiring to say the least. I hope you will prayerfully consider accompanying me and other brothers and sisters in Christ on this pilgrimage!

Sincerely in Christ,
Rev. Scott A. Haynes, S.J.C.
