It's official! The Frassati Society of Minnesota will be making its first trip to the Southwest! All friends of Pier Giorgio are invited to be a part of this terrific outdoor adventure!
The Minnesota group will be leaving from St. Paul, MN, early on Saturday, May 9th and returning late on Monday, May 18th. They hope to make quick stops at Great Sand Dunes, Mesa Verde, Zion and Arches National Parks on the drive out and back, They will camp at both the South Rim and the North Rim, and will operate out of base camps at the top in order to accommodate all levels of hikers.
Fr. Nels Gjengahl from St. Odelia’s Catholic Church (in Shoreview, MN) will accompany the group and provide daily mass & adoration!
Projected cost for the trip is $300 which includes camping, gas, permits and food.
