The Rev. Jozef Mucha, former pastor of Christ Our Light Roman Catholic Church, Pulaski, is making plans for a pilgrimage to Poland, the fifth trip he will organize. It will include travelers from Central and Northern New York.
Father Mucha returned to Poland in 2012 and lives in Rzeszow but still spends time in the United States and Canada to visit family, friends and former colleagues.
The trip will take place for approximately 12 days in May, with the date and itinerary to be determined shortly.
The tour will include popular tourist spots, palaces, churches and religious shrines in Warsaw, Krakow and Zakopane in the Tatra Mountains. The group of 15 to 25 people will likely make stops at Czestochowa to see Jasna Gora, home of the historic Black Madonna bejeweled painting, Wawel Cathedral in Krakow, an underground salt chapel in the Wieliczka salt mine, the World Sanctuary of the Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki, the Auschwitz concentration camp historic site and the Royal Castle in Warsaw.
A limited number of spaces are available for the trip, which will include nearly all meals, including big breakfasts and lunches. The $2,800 price includes airfare. The tour is not limited to Roman Catholics. Travelers should be in good health and prepared for walking tours.
