A pilgrimage to Ireland will give you a special glimpse of a unique part of the world. Ireland is an ancient land, a marvelous blend of historic and contemporary beauty. The Emerald Isle is eager to show you its natural wonders as well as its vibrant city streets. You won’t want to miss the charming towns and villages, nor the warmth and spirited hospitality of Ireland. Join us, as we embark on this pilgrimage to religious ecclesiastical centers, illuminated manuscripts, ancient ruins, stunning panoramic views, legendary castles surrounded by moats, and the romantic and rugged regions of lakes and bogs. This country, filled with traditional music and magnetic people, will make you feel right at home. We are pleased to extend this personal invitation to you and I hope that you will join us in Ireland on this very special pilgrimage of fellowship and music.
We need you!
Hosting 5,000 people for a 3-day festival takes a huge team of volunteers....over 400 to be exact! We are looking for parishioners, parents and students to volunteer a few hours of their time. We need help to manage booths, tents and kids activities all weekend long, but we are especially short on man power for our set-up on Friday, July 20. All students that volunteer will earn service hours for their time. Grab a friend, bring some sunscreen and sign up for a shift or 2 at BenFest!
