About Select International Tours
Founded in 1987 by President, Edita Krunic, Select International is a leader in the Catholic pilgrimage market. The concept for the pilgrimage travel company was realized when six visionaries began to receive apparitions from the Virgin Mary in Edita’s home country of Bosnia and Hercegovina. The strong sense of prayer, faith, and hope present in Medjugorje inspired Edita to organize group trips, and Select International became the first American tour company which organized air and land packages to the remote village.
About Your Trip
Your group will travel through the French countryside, via deluxe motor coach, while your English-speaking French guide elaborates on the sites you pass and answers any questions that you might have. You stop for the night in Lisieux, home of St. Therese the Little Flower. There you will share a meal and get to know the other pilgrims. The next day, following a beautiful French breakfast, you board a glamorous river cruise ship and begin your pilgrimage on the Seine river.
Along the way, you will visit: Honfleur, the beaches of Normandy, Mont Saint Michel (a UNESCO Heritage Site), Rouen (the Home of Joan of Arc), the palace of King Louis IVK, and the gardens of Versailles. Upon arriving in Paris, you will celebrate Mass at Rue De Bac, in the chapel of the Miraculous Medal. While there you may venerate the incorrupt body of St. Catherine Laboure. And finally, you can take in the beauty of Paris from Sacré-Cœur, which sits at the highest point in the city.
About Your Optional 3-Day Extension to Lourdes
Those who opt to take the 3-Day extension will take the Bullet Train from Paris to Lourdes. Once there, you will celebrate Masses in the Basilica and at the Grotto where Our Lady appeared to Saint Bernadette. You can drink water from the miraculous spring and visit the healing baths.

During your stay you may also attend a Blessing of the Sick and celebrate with your new friends at a Farewell Dinner.
