Spring Break Road Trip Pilgrimage



Adventure. History. Beauty. Friendship. Faith (lots of!).

San Francisco. Monterey. CA highway 1. Santa Barbara. Los Angeles.

Camping. Hiking. Ocean swimming.

Join your fellow young adults from Newman for a road trip pilgrimage to California! A pilgrimage is more than just vacation: it’s about traveling to find God in diverse places, in the beauty of nature and in the complexity of human stories. It’s about traveling in order to be changed, transformed, deepened. Go with us to the beautiful coastal California and follow the trail of St. Junipero Serra and the Franciscan missionaries who brought the Christian faith to these lands.
