Fr. Sunny has been conducting pilgrimages to various Catholic Shrines since 2006.  These pilgrimages are very steep in spiritual input, but the total pilgrimage experience also engages the special cultural elements of the sites and countries that are visited.  Fr. Sunny has led a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the Marian Shrines of Portugal, Spain and France (Fatima to Lourdes), the holy shrines of Poland, Hungary, Austria and the Czech Republic (Warsaw to Prague), Italy (Venice to Rome, Amalfi Coast), Mexico, France (Lourdes to Paris) and the Footsteps of Paul and John in Turkey and Greece (Istanbul to the Greek Isles to Athens). These pilgrimages are practical and less expensive ways of doing a safe and organized spiritual journey that is meant to build our relationship with God, with our loved ones and fellow pilgrims.
