Trolley Tour of St Augustine, Le Leche Shrine at Sacred Acre, Outdoor Mass at Site of 1565
by Steve Ray on November 3, 2021
Bud is a devout Catholic and drove the trolley car and gave us a tour of Saint Augustine Florida. What a delightful historical and spiritual experience. We were dropped off at the le Leche shrine, the first Marian shrine in America.
We toured the Sacred Acre where the first town in the New World was built by Catholics, the first parish Mass and the first Marian shrine. Knowledgeable Catholics brought the history alive.
We had an outdoor Mass where the first Mass was celebrated in 1565 on the shore. Free time in the evening and a great day overall.
