St. Augustine Florida Pilgrimage Day 2: Cathedral, Fountain of Youth, Trolley Car Tour, Atlantic Ocean
by Steve Ray on April 28, 2021
The bus took off at 8 AM this morning for the Cathedral built in 1793-97 which was built on the site of the first church from 1565. This was the first church ever built in the United States, the first town built and where the first baptisms took place in the United States. For that reason, had Mass and renewed our baptismal vows this morning. Quite nice!
We visited the Fountain of Youth and a trolley car tour of the town and it’s Catholic history. Our Catholic guide was an evangelist! Free afternoon with lounge chairs to enjoy the sun and sand on the beach of the Atlantic Ocean or in the Old City. Evening free in the quaint, Old World-feel of pedestrian-only Old City of St. Augustine’s historic section.
