Step into the True, Good, and Beautiful!

A young adult pilgrimage to the Inheritance 2018 Conference including highlights of

“Brew City”—Milwaukee, Wisconsin.



Dates of this pilgrimage are:
Saturday, November 10 - Sunday, November 11 (2 days / 1 night)

Pilgrimage Highlights:

  • Inheritance 2018 Conference: Attend this year’s Inheritance Conference hosted by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Nationally-acclaimed speakers delve into the topics relevant to young adults navigating today’s confusing world. Come relax and learn, make friends, and encounter God through the sacraments. For more information about the conference, please go to:

  • Basilica of St. Josaphat: Built by Polish immigrants with materials from a razed Chicago building, the basilica is a beautiful example of the Polish Cathedral style and is also modeled after St. Peter’s in Rome.

  • Sprecher Brewing Company: It’s called “Brew City” for a reason, and a trip to Milwaukee isn’t complete without visiting a brewery. Tour an iconic craft brewhouse. Enjoy beer and soda samples and receive a souvenir tasting glass.

  • Milwaukee Public Market: You’ll be sure to find something you love among the dozens of food vendors and seasonal stalls filled with ethnic and artisan goods. Take home some award-winning Wisconsin cheese and sausage.

  • Lake Michigan Waterfront: Take in the spectacular views from the western shoreline of Lake Michigan.
