Pilgrimage to Toledo Ohio a Great Success!
by Steve Ray on March 22, 2010
On Saturday, Janet and I, together with Corporate Travel and Ave Maria Radio, put on a wonderful one day pilgrimage to see the beautiful churches of Toledo and to meet Bishop Blair.
We visited the Church of the Immaculate Conception, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, St. Stephen of Hungary Catholic Church and then, after lunch the Cathedral — Our Lady Queen of the Most Holy Rosary. I can’t even begin to describe the beauty, elegance and Scriptural eloquence of this church.

We had two completely full buses with a waiting list. We had lunch at the famous (and fun) Tony Packos Restaurant. We ended with Mass at the Most Holy Rosary Cathedral.
I (Steve Ray) gave a talk on Mary on each bus and so did Al Kresta, CEO of Ave Maria Radio and host of the Kresta in the Afternoon.
Carmen and Diana were our exceptional escorts who kept everything organized, professional, and punctual.
We are planning more of these local pilgrimages so keep an eye on our pilgrimage website at www.SteveGoes.com.
Our next one will probably be to the Shrine of the Cross in the Woods in Indian River, Michigan on September 14th — the Feast of the Exultation of the Cross. This is the world’s largest crucifix. This will be during the turning of colors of the trees in northern Michigan — so a beautiful trip!’
I am still trying to find time to turn my pictures and video clips into a YouTube video to share with everyone here on my blog so stay tuned.
I’m glad it was such a success. I really wanted to go, but unfortunately, my financial circumstances at this time dictated otherwise!! I’m sure it was a wonderful day for everyone. The trip to Indian River sounds especially wonderful. I hope to be able to go on that one. Take care and keep up the good work! God bless you and have a very happy and blessed Easter!
