The Easter Pilgrimage is a small whirlwind OMV trip, visiting different European cities for Holy Week. Since its inception in 2009, we’ve visited Rome, Malta, Paris, Seville and Florence, and Vienna for Easter 2019
There is always a fantastic mixture of beautiful Holy Week services, cultural outings and OMV silliness, with plenty of time to sample the local cuisine. In past trips we have covered everything from Easter Sunday Mass with the Holy Father in Rome to roller-skating Maltese parrots, and veneration of the Crown of Thorns in Notre Dame de Paris to learning the art of flamenco.
It is a wonderful opportunity to experience all the work, spirituality and socialising of the OMV, but on a much smaller scale – we are a team of just 8 Guests and 20 Volunteers. It is a chance to visit a beautiful city and celebrate Holy Week in a way you’ve never done before – it’s always a hugely fun and intensely emotional experience that you will never forget.
