Travel Opportunities Students from Spanish and science classes travel to Spain

Saint Agnes School students have the ability to augment the classroom learning experience with several travel opportunities.

Country Music Hall of Fame – Nashville, TN

Past trips have included the study of Biology in Costa Rica, History on the eastern seaboard, and language study in Spain. In addition, many activities may also include the option to travel, such as spring training for baseball in Florida, a Dixieland tour to Nashville for the band, and a summer excursion to the Boundary Waters.

Perhaps the most notable opportunity to travel with Saint Agnes is the vocations pilgrimage. Offered to young men and women in high school on an alternating basis, the vocations pilgrimage is a chance for students to explore God’s call in their lives.

Led by faculty and staff, students embrace the idea of becoming pilgrims – travelers who are not only interested in the historical significance of a site, but in how they themselves might be moved by its meaning.  They have regular opportunities for prayer and reflection, along with daily Mass and access to the sacrament of confession.

Up until 2013, the destination for the vocations pilgrimage has been the eternal city of Rome and other hillside towns in Italy such as Assisi and San Giovanni Rotondo.  

 

In the spring of 2014, the high school boys set out on a new course to the Holy Land, to pilgrim sites such as Nazareth, Galilee, the Jordan Valley, Bethlehem, the Mount of Olives, and Calvary.    

In the spring of 2015, the girls pilgrimage destination was France, where they examined the lives of Saints Bernadette, Margaret Mary, Therese of Lisieux,  Joan of Arc, Catherine Laboure and Catherine of Siena. They traveled to Paris, Avignon, Lisieux, Lourdes, Chartres, and Paray Le Monial.  Download the itinerary.

Read one student’s reflection after returning from the vocations pilgrimage to France: 

“In France, I realized how important prayer is by spending so much time with it. I realized that saying the Hail Mary and Our Father is important, but personal prayer is also vital. I was able to enhance my relationship with God by spending time just talking to Him… I was completely at peace. I came to realize that God will take care of things and that He loves us all like a Father. It was so beautiful and I will never forget that night. As we walked back to the hotel, some of the girls from choir got together to sing the Tantum Ergo. All in all, it was an incredibly powerful night for me.”
