Save the date! Pilgrimage to commemorate 75th anniversary of D-Day

The Clarion Herald invites you to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day with a pilgrimage to the beaches of Normandy and the shrines of France, June 11-23, 2019.

New Orleans WWII historian Ron Drez Sr. – one of the world’s foremost experts on the Normandy invasion and a long-time associate of Dr. Stephen Ambrose – will escort Clarion Herald pilgrims on three full days across the 60-mile Normandy invasion front.

Retrace the steps of St. Joan of Arc in Tours, Poitiers and Orleans; visit the Grand Cathedral in Rennes; and soak in the breathtaking beauty of Mont Saint-Michel before heading for three full days in Normandy, where Drez will bring to life the heroic sacrifices of the Greatest Generation during the D-Day invasion. Daily Mass will be celebrated.

There is an optional extended stay in Paris or an optional extension to Lourdes.
