Immaculate Conception Church in Elmhurst is hosting a bus trip on June 25 to experience the nationally renowned Shrine of Christ’s Passion in St. John, Indiana. The coach bus will leave IC at 9 a.m., returning by 4 p.m. If you are interested in participating, please RSVP to Pam Stefik at 630-530-3497 to reserve your spot. Space is limited. The cost to participate is $25 per person, which is payable at the time of reservation. The charge will defray the cost of transportation.
There are a limited number of club cars available for those who may not be able to walk the path. You are encouraged to bring a sack lunch, which may be enjoyed on the grounds. The group will visit the shrine’s phenomenal gift shop upon completion of the tour and will tour St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church, which is next to the shrine.
The shrine is a multi-media interactive, half-mile winding Prayer Trail that depicts the last days of Jesus Christ’s life. Forty life-size bronze sculptures in a tranquil setting, complete with beautiful music and amazingly sculptured gardens, allow visitors to experience the story of the crucifixion and resurrection as never before!
