PEARL OF KAZAKHSTAN
Travel with Canon Benoit Jayr, ICKSP, on a once-in-a-lifetime pilgrimage to Kazakhstan and Ancient Nicaea! Discover a far and beautiful land, the birthplace of ancient civilizations. Once part of the Great Silk Road linking the East & West, Kazakhstan has great natural beauty and a deep religious patrimony! Pray the Holy Mass in the soaring new neo-Gothic cathedral of Karaganda, an epitaph to all who dared challenge atheism and a virtual catechism in stone! Visit the only Marian Shrine in Central Asia. Stop in Istanbul (Constantinople) and Iznik (ancient Nicaea).
Guests of His Excellency, Most Reverend Athanasius Schneider, Auxiliary Bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan
