Dear Christ Church Plano parishioners,
Monika and I invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to Italy, as we experience Romans and the Renaissance in the steps of St Peter & St Paul.
Italy is a land of culture and history, beauty and culinary delight. We will tour the Italian countryside in Tuscany and Umbria, experience the grandeur of Rome, and as we have on each of our journeys, we will dig into the Word of God. There is nothing like walking where the Word was written. The focus of this trip will be Paul’s Letter to the Romans. We will gain fresh insight into the early church and the modern church too! Paul’s Letter to the Church at Rome is a powerful theological treatise that speaks volumes to us today and Rome is a magnificent city combining ancient and new. As we travel we will explore the final earthly days of the Apostles Peter and Paul as they faced martyrdom.
We will also gain insight into western civilization and culture. We will share warm fellowship over genuine Italian cooking and the delights of Tuscan cuisine and countryside. We will share the marvel of some of the world’s greatest artists like Michelangelo and Raphael, and architectural monuments in Florence, Pisa, Siena, and Rome.
And we are overjoyed and blessed to be led in our touring by our dear friends and fellow parishioners, David and Elizabeth Sparks. Monika and I traveled with a group from Christ Church to Greece in 2019 with Footstep Ministries, and saw firsthand the professional, learned, and experienced leadership of David and Elizabeth. I give thanks to the Lord for their gracious and warm hospitality, and their first class planning of every detail.
This will be an experience of a lifetime where will will grow as disciples of Jesus. Will you come and walk with us in the steps of St Peter & St Paul?
Yours in Christ,
Father Paul & Monika Donison
