Due to COVID-19 and the current travel restrictions, we have postponed our trip until November 2021. The new dates will be posted soon!
Join the Napa Institute as we delve into the incredible story of the Catholic Church in Japan. Beginning in Nagasaki, we will visit the churches built in memory of the 16th century missionaries and martyrs, and learn about the struggle of the faithful when Christianity was banned for 250 years.
We will also reflect on the lives of both St. Maximilian Kolbe, who spent time in Nagasaki before World War II, and Servant of God Takashi Nagai, the Catholic physician who survived the atomic bomb and wrote The Bells of Nagasaki. We will end the trip in the Tokyo, taking time to enjoy the cultural activities the region has to offer.
We will be sharing the itinerary for the new 2021 dates soon. The itinerary that was planned for the 2020 trip can be viewed here: 2020 Itinerary
