Event Details

Oct. 26-Nov. 2, 2023*
“St. Therese & the Little Way” Seine River France Cruise

* Plus optional pre-cruise extension to Lourdes Oct. 22-26, 2023 * (Let Select International know if you are interested in this add-on Lourdes excursion)

Dr. Christopher West will create an exclusive pilgrim booklet for his reflections, which will explore St. John Paul II’s Theology of the Body while incorporating the wisdom and insight of St. Thérèse of Lisieux. Pilgrims will discover the deep significance of: what it means to be made in the image and likeness of God; why God created us male and female; how the physical union of man and woman is innately oriented toward life and love; and how this union is the essential foundation for a life-affirming society — all in the light of spiritual childhood and the Little Way of St. Thérèse.

Christopher will be joined by his wife, Wendy; Fr. Luke Farabaugh, chaplain; and Jason and Jeanette Clark, TOBI Executive Director and Faculty.

We will begin and end our journey in Paris. In between, as we sail, we’ll visit Lisieux to follow in the footsteps of St. Therese and her parents Sts. Marie and Louis (the first spouses to be canonized as a couple). Other highlights include Monet’s Estate in Giverny; the Normandy Beaches of World War II; Rouen, where the trial and execution of St. Joan of Arc took place; and much more.

Pilgrims have the options to relax on the ship each day or join us for fun excursions. Upon return to the ship, we will have fantastic meals on the ship and then it’s up to the top deck for some wine, conversation or prayer, all while watching the beautiful scenery go by. 

You will have plenty of free time to explore the local cuisine, social life and sites not on the itinerary but you want to visit. Or you have the option to relax back on the ship — perhaps enjoy a drink on the top deck. Our motto is Faith, Food & Fun!
