urged John Paul II when he was installed as Pope in 1978.

The year 2020 commemorates two special events for Catholics: the 100th anniversary of St. John Paul II’s birth on May 18 and the renowned Passion Play of Oberammergau. Join NAWAS in Poland to celebrate Karol Wojtyła’s extraordinary life and legacy in his homeland. Moreover, you’ll also have a chance to experience the Passion Play!

Nawas is offering three special Poland Pilgrimages, including two programs that also include the epic Passion Play of Oberammergau in Germany.

Honor Blessed John Paul II’s Life

Beloved by Catholics worldwide, Saint John Paul II’s personal warmth and charisma helped transform the papacy and inspired millions of Catholics.

  • Visit the places connected with his birth and early pastoral life, including his birthplace in Wadowice and Krakow, where he served as archbishop.

  • See the famed “Black Madonna” in Jasna Gora Monastery near Czestochowa.

  • Depending on the program, you’ll also see Zakopane, where the Blessed Pope frequently spent time, as well as Wroclaw and Auschwitz.

A Once-a-Decade Event

In Germany, as you watch the last days of Jesus unfold, you and your parishioners will leave the Oberammergau Passion Play with renewed faith and an affirmation of the importance of His Life and Resurrection. With performances once every ten years, this is an opportunity you don’t want to miss!
