Join Us in Spirit and in Prayer

Eleven wonderful Pilgrims are experiencing the Early Christian World Pilgrimage-Retreat in Turkey, March 31 to April 18.  We are Martin Dodwell, Doug Dombek, Nathan Donohoe, Lucy Fein, Linda Hart, Carmen Lange, Jon Paul Puno, Joan Slimocosky, Fr. Norm Supancheck, Deborah Williams, Greg Woodell, in addition to myself as leader, Fr. Tom Welbers.

We invite you to join us in spirit and in prayer, and we will remember you in our daily Masses and prayers, especially at significant holy places, such as the House of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Ephesus, the tomb of Philip the Apostle, the Basilica of St. Nicholas in Myra, and the ancient Cave Churches and Monasteries in Cappadocia

Please also subscribe to our Newsletter in which our Pilgrims will post their own reflections on this wonderful experience of our faith and heritage. Thank you and may God bless you always. Fr. Tom Welbers



About Fr. Tom Welbers

I have been a Catholic priest for nearly fifty years, most of that time serving in parish and college campus ministry. I also have professional degrees in theology and liturgy, as well as institutional management, and continue avidly to explore pastoral theology, Scripture, liturgy, ecumenical and interfaith relations, and spiritual direction. I have sought always to be a faithful pastor - the word means "shepherd" of God's people. As a pastor, I have a passion for sharing insight into our Christian heritage through teaching, writing, and leading pilgrimages, especially to Early Christian World sites in Turkey - hence the title "Pilgrim Shepherd." Now actively retired from parish ministry, but not from pastoral ministry, I live at Nazareth House in Los Angeles.
