About the Trip

This was my second trip with St. Theresa Catholic Church in Douglasville. This time we traveled to Greece and Turkey. We visited several early Christian sights as we followed in the footsteps of St. Paul. We spent three nights cruising the Aegean Sea and even mixed in two relaxing nights on the island of Santorini. The places we visited were some of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It was great to be able to travel with friends from my parish, including several who came on my last trip.
