What you want to know...
This unique pilgrimage has a limited number of spots because of the solitude and peace we mean to create for you. The life and mission of Blessed Stanley Rother is one of inspiration and love, of justice and hope, and of courage and resurrection. Our pilgrimage will take you to the very spot of his martyrdom and bring you into relationship with the people that he loved and served. The picturesque surroundings of Lake Atitlan are ideal for connecting with spouses or friends, for prayer, and active leisure.
Our goal is to create a transformative experience like none other for our pilgrims and to help cultivate hope for the people of Santiago. Because of our devotion to Blessed Stanley, we also aim to employ professionals from the local community to guide us and prepare our meals. Rest and relax in beautiful lodging and gardens. Enjoy local coffee, chocolate and daily naps in a hammock. Up for an adventure, we take daily optional trips to remote lakeside mayan villages for shopping, church visits, and artisan workshops.
Included in your pilgrimage:
Rest. Pray. Experience Beauty.
There is nothing mandatory on the itinerary. Stay busy on an adventure or just soak up the beauty. It's all up to you.
