Dear Friends,

The Passion Play of Oberammergau portrays the last week of the life of Christ. It will not be repeated until 2030! Jesuits West has obtained a special block of 1st Class, center section seats to this inspiring event. Click here for the brochure and registration form.

In 1633, this small German village made an oath that if they were spared the Black Plague, they would present a day-long religious play. They have kept their promise for over 380 years. With a cast of 1,000 in realistic costumes, along with impressive staging and choreography, lighting and dramatic sets, this professional production will vividly take you into the streets and scenes of Jesus’s final days in Jerusalem from Palm Sunday to Easter. Be prepared to experience the richness of Holy Week as never before. Oberammergau is truly the highlight of this extraordinary Pilgrimage, May 11-21, 2022.

We will also be visiting the Mozart city of Salzburg, Austria, the Sound of Music sites of Mirabell Gardens, and Nonnberg Convent where the actual Maria lived as a novice. In Salzburg, there will be time to take in an opera or concert on your own. Throughout the Pilgrimage, Fr. Sam Bellino, SJ, and Fr. John Mossi, SJ, serve as Spiritual Directors celebrating Mass daily in beautiful churches and Jesuit sites.

After a stopover at world-famous Neuschwanstein Castle, which is the model castle for Walt Disney theme parks, we explore Munich renowned for its art collection, Olympic stadium, historic old town, Viktaulienmarkt food market and Marienplatz Square Cuckoo Clock with dancing folk characters.

This adventure promises to be a much sought-after pilgrimage that will sell out quickly. Space is first-deposit, first-reserved basis.

Join us and be inspired,

Jesuits West Oberammergau Team
