Join Sandra Jean on Pilgrimage
I read somewhere: “Let me not criticize my neighbor till I have walked a mile in his/her shoes”, and that has been my motto from that point on. As a teacher, I tried always to do better, be better and when students came to me for advice,(because I taught religious studies), I knew I needed to have the proper skill set to help them. I went back to school and got a degree in school counseling, after several years of counseling, I realized that administratively I needed to make changes. Again, I went back and got a degree in Administration and Supervision.
After I left education per se, I went into parish work and had the opportunity to fulfill one of the things on my bucket list, a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I am still impacting the graces from that trip. My friends hearing my story asked when was I going to plan something for them, and a new path opened up for me: walking in the steps of Faith with others and sharing that mile with them.

My trip to the Holy Lands was a wonderful experience. When I think back on each place we visited it’s hard to pick one that was more special than the next. Sandra Jean was a fantastic tour leader. She explained the special points and aspects of each place we visited. It made our trip so much more memorable! Her knowledge of the scriptures and the historical implications of each site was something that hold dear to my heart. It brought the readings to life for me when I returned home. She has infinite knowledge about so many places. Magdala, Cana, Capernaum, Bethlehem, Jerusalem to just name a few truly brought to life the Bible stories I had read. I am looking forward to future adventures with Sandra Jean.
