An Invitation from Debbie and Vanessa

The message of love and family unity from Our Lady can be found in Betania, Venezuela. We have traveled many times to the beautiful grotto built there to honor the place where the Blessed Mother appeared to Maria Esperanza. Each time, we and the pilgrims who accompany us, feel the love and presence of Our Lady. The beautiful shrine, chapel and many devotional areas will raise your minds and hearts to prayer. It is truly a piece of heaven on earth.

Join us. We look forward to sharing this incredible trip with you.
