Back in the Air! Ahhh! Feels Great!

by Steve Ray on July 3, 2021

Hello Friends and Fellow Pilgrims:

It is exhilarating to again be purchasing airline tickets for places like Fatima & Lourdes — Athens, Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi in Greece and Turkey and especially the HOLY LAND!

Yes, we are back in the air and after watching over 45 buses get shut down over the last year and a half, it is good to be filling buses again, reserving hotels, arranging guides and drivers, and reserving Masses at the holiest and most sacred sites in the world!

We are often asked, “Do we need to be vaccinated and wear masks?” The first answer to that is that we at Footprints of God Pilgrimages will never require a vaccine or masks. Those two things are completely optional for our pilgrimages.

However, we will have to comply with the various countries we visit and the airlines we fly. We see a relaxing of these requirements. Hopefully, the airlines will back off the strict mandates. As it stands now, the countries visited on our St. Paul Cruise in October will only require is a negative test. Europe looks like they will not have a vaccine requirement but we are watching closely. Israel does require a vaccination now, but hopefully, that will be gone before too long.

Janet and I have been flying all over the country to give talks at conferences and parish missions. Great to be with real people in real places again — and to see smiling faces.
