Alpine Europe Pilgrimage – Featuring the Passion Play of Oberammergau

Parishioners,

We’d like to inform you of a rare opportunity to witness a world renowned passion play that is part of a centuries old tradition while visiting an area of Europe with rich historical and cultural significance.  Tickets are extremely limited, first come – first serve.

“The play’s presentation can be traced to 1633 when the Black Plague swept Europe.  The people of Oberammergau took a solemn oath:  if God spared them, they would present a day-long play depicting the last week in the life of Christ.  To this day they have kept their promise and every ten years the citizens of Oberammergau perform their passion play with the same love and devotion they have shown for over 380 years.  Today the play takes place on an open-air stage with a covered auditorium seating 4,700 against a beautiful backdrop of towering Alpine Mountains.”
