West Coast Pilgrimage


Following in the footstep of St. Patrick, Ireland’s most famous saint, this group of pilgrims under the expert guidance of Jesuit Father Brendan McManus discovered the Irish countryside and wonderful hospitality, braved the Irish weather (four seasons in one day) and found God on His holy mountain, Croagh Patrick. You can follow their pilgrimage day by day thanks to our embedded journalists Meta and Alenka.
