Here is the tentative schedule:
Depart St. Bridget @ 6:00 a.m
More coffee at The Shrine 8:30 a.m.
Guided Tour of The Shrine 9:00 a.m.
Confessions or Private Prayer 10:00-11:00 a.m. (Fr. Stefan or there is also Confession available at the Shrine Chapel this hour)
Holy Mass @ 11:00 a.m. (Fr. Stefan will say a private Mass in the Chapel of Our Lady of Sorrows, the Patroness of Slovakia)
11:45 a.m.-1:00 p.m. Private Prayer/Bookstore/Gift Shop. During this time, I usually arrange a nearby side trip for those in the group that want to venture outside the Shrine. This year it will probably be to either the Dominican House of Studies or the newly renovated Shrine of St. John Paul II across the street from the Shrine
1:00 p.m. Stations of the Cross in the Crypt Church (lower level of The Shrine of the Immaculate Conception)
1:45-2:00. Head to Irish Pub for Luncheon
3:00-3:30 Depart for St. Bridget
