April 4 -  12, 2003
Sponsored by The Workers of Our Lady - Canada

The NOTICE: (Read below and see pictures of trip)

*** As soon as people found out about the trip, ALL available limited spaces were taken up and NO further notice was made as no more pilgrims could be accommodated.  We apologize but it was not possible to expand the group at this time. The group of 25 people travelled as planned from Toronto on April 4th, 2003 to Garabandal. ***
*** Another surprise happened that Bishop Roman Danylak was unable to travel to Garbandal with our group because of health reasons at this time. Father Miroslav Cajka travelled as the spiritual director and many have recognized what a wonderful priest he is. In addition Dr. Michael and Helen Rozeluk were also forced to cancel their trip because Helen had a severe fall down some stairs only a few days before the trip was to leave and suffered a separated shoulder. She is recovering nicely. Maria-Elena and Hamid Hemmati were asked to lead the group and they did an excellent job. ***
