Hungary and Poland

with The Compass

Join The Compass, the award winning Catholic newspaper of the Diocese of Green Bay, WI,  on an amazing journey to Hungary and Poland. Learn about the origins of our Faith in Central Europe and how these Christians heroically defended our Faith against invading forces. Visits in Hungary include Budapest (Gellert Hill, St. Stephen's Basilica, Fisherman's Bastion, St. Mathias, Heroes Square, Danube Cruise), Mariaremette (Marian Shrine), Lazar Equestrian Farm and much more. In Poland, we visit the rebuilt Capital of Warsaw and the gorgeous old Royal Capital of Krakow! We also visit the City of the Immaculate of St. Maximilian Kolbe (Niepokalanow) as well as the place of his martyrdom (Auschwitz). Enter St. John Paul's apartment at his birthplace in Wadowice, and see his Baptismal Font at the Basilica there. Descend thousands of feet to witness the spectacular art inside Salt Mines of Wieliczka! Pray Divine Mercy Chaplet at the tomb of St. Faustina at the Shrine of Divine Mercy in Lagiewniki. Also in Lagiewniki is the new amazing complex called The St. John Paul II Center. You can't go to Poland without visiting your mother! That's why we go to Czestochowa, home of the Monastery in Jasna Gora, housing the famous Icon of Our Lady of Czestochowa!

If you ever wanted to see the "Blue Danube" and be at the places where the Divine Mercy story developed, then say YES! If you ever wanted to see the magnificent beauty of these two countries, if you ever wanted to learn the amazing history and experience the strong faith found in these two countries, then say YES! Come join us on this unforgettable pilgrimage!

NOTES: Note 1) Compass pilgrimages ALWAYS sell out before the registration deadline!  Note 2) An "Early Angel Discount" of $100 per person is usually offered for those who register early (by November 13th). Note 3) Compass pilgrimages come with extra inclusions, like all the tips, which are already included. Note 4) This pilgrimage is being operated under the premise that both Hungary and Poland will be open to US Citizens with reasonable and clear Covid-19 requirements. Currently, Poland has restrictions that will make it very difficult to operate this pilgrimage. If the difficult conditions persist at 100 days prior to departure, the pilgrimage will be cancelled and all deposit moneys will be returned. Mater Dei does not intend to collect deposits until these countries have opened up to US Citizens. See the Terms & Conditions of the brochure once it is finished.
