On Thursday, June 27, 2019, thirteen Dashers along with Theology Faculty Danny Pavlovich, Director of Salvatorian Service Stephanie Monson, and parent chaperone Tim Dunne, left Milwaukee for the Holy Land. The ten-day trip was a dream Pavlovich conceived nearly three years ago — all with the intent to provide his Theology students an experience that would “make the faith more real to them; for the Gospels to come alive,” he shares.
Pavlovich and Monson carved out time each day to pray with students and reflect on their shared journey. And they invite you to hear from some of the students whose lives have been changed as they walked in the steps of Christ — from the Sea of Galilee and the Jordan River, and from Bethlehem to Jerusalem, this was not a trip, but a pilgrimage of real-life, experiential, and transformative faith.
