New Pilgrimage Places for 2018

Thank you so much for the unbelievable response to our Celtic Pilgrimages for the summer of 2018! Three weeks after we publicly advertised them, we only have one available place left out of the forty.

Because of this, and since we are still receiving a great number of emails from people who would like to join us next summer, we have decided to add two more pilgrimages to the initial four.

The new weeks of pilgrimage are 30 June – 7 July 2018, and 4 – 11 August 2018. The available places for the whole summer are distributed as follows (updated on July 12th):

Pilgrimage 1 (9 – 16 June 2018):      SOLD OUT

Pilgrimage 2 (23 – 30 June 2018):          SOLD OUT

Pilgrimage 3 (30 June – 7 July 2018):             1 available place (one gentleman)

Pilgrimage 4 (14 – 21 July 2018):             SOLD OUT

Pilgrimage 5 (4 – 11 August 2018):             SOLD OUT

Pilgrimage 6 (18 – 25 August 2018):       SOLD OUT

To make a booking, first please check with me that places are still available (fatherseraphim@mullmonastery.com), then send your deposit by cheque to American Friends of the Celtic Saints, at 3736 W County Rd 4, Berthoud, CO 80513.

For UK pilgrims, please send your cheques to Kilninian Trust, 25 Howard Terrace, Morpeth, NE61 1HT.

International pilgrims, please pay your deposits via the website (by PayPal or any major credit / debit card).

Your booking is confirmed once we receive your deposit.

A day on the Isle of Lunga

The Treshnish Isles – Lunga and Staffa – are our back-up plan for the day we plan to visit St Kenneth’s Isle. If the winds are too strong for the sailing boat we charter to Inchkenneth, we take a motor boat instead and spend a day in the Treshnish Isles.

These are a few photos taken about a week ago, while I was there preparing our coming pilgrimages. I pray they bring a smile and a drop of peacefulness to your heart this morning, wherever you may be.

2018 Summer Pilgrimages

Christ is risen!

I am happy to announce that all our pilgrimages for this summer are fully booked, and that we are now accepting bookings for the summer of next year.

The four weeks of pilgrimage for summer of 2018 are:

Pilgrimage One:       June 9 – 16

Pilgrimage Two:       June 23 – 30

Pilgrimage Three:    July 14 – 21

Pilgrimage Four:      August 18 – 25

As in previous years, we shall limit each group to ten people per pilgrimage – this is due to the size of the boats we use, as well as that of the house. I also find that a larger number of pilgrims takes away the opportunity to spend time together and properly meet each other.

For a third year running, we shall keep the cost of the pilgrimage unchanged – 1400 USD. The cost in pounds will be updated regularly, due to exchange variations. This price includes everything for the week you are in the Isles – accommodation, food, three cars, a sailing boat, a motor boat, ferries, entry tickets and fees.

To book a place, you must purchase a non-refundable Deposit (400 USD) either through the monastery website or by cheque. Please send me an email – at fatherseraphim@mullmonastery.com – before paying for your deposit, to avoid double-booking.

Cheques should be written to our US organisation – American friends of the Celtic Saints – and sent to 3736 W County Rd 4, Berthoud, CO 80513

The remaining balance is due by the end of the calendar year (31 December 2017).

To find out more about the islands and places we visit, or for more details about the pilgrimages, please take a few minutes and browse this site. You will find information about each day of the pilgrimage, as well as an updated account of the available places for each of the four weeks of pilgrimage.

May our risen Lord bless all of us, and may the Celtic Saints keep you under their protection.
