About the trip…

Journey across France alongside fellow Catholics, accompanied by Fr. Tobias Bayer, ICR who will give daily spiritual talks and provide us with Mass (as location allows) and Confession (as availability permits). Each day will consist of religious excursions and individual free time. Each day concludes with a community meal. We will visit Paris, Lisieux, Reims, and Lourdes.

What previous guests are saying…

“With IHS Events’ trips, I’ve always felt truly immersed in the destination’s culture, not just living amongst the locals, but as one of them. They’ve been unforgettable experiences… experiences of a lifetime!” – Sasha

“Having participated in trips to both France and Rome with IHS, in addition to thoroughly enjoying it and learning much at the time, upon reflection I realized that I wouldn’t have seen nor learned anywhere near as much about these historic Catholic locations had I just done this as a personal trip planned on my own.  Having an experienced guide made a world of difference to maximizing my time and benefiting as much as possible from the experience! Also, attending an event involving several conferences on topics ranging from Catholic spirituality, through to Catholic history, with the luxury of daily Mass and the sacraments being incorporated into that conference-based event, was another invaluable and enriching experience.” – Theresa
