The Cruise Itinerary:

 

October 24, 2021 - Embark the Jade in Athens (Piraeus), Greece 11:00 pm Departure

This is the cradle of civilization, the oldest city in Europe. Not only is this city home to the Acropolis and some of the most important architectural structures and archaeological finds in the Western world, It is also a very modern city, an urban amalgam of extraordinary art, culture, cuisine and shopping.

 

October 25, 2021 - Iraklion, Crete

Although it's on the Greek Island of Crete, Iraklion offers a wealth of Venetian architecture from their rule in the 13th century, including magnificent fortified walls. Don't miss the Minoan Palace of Knosos Knossos, immortalized in Greek Mythology by the legend of the Minotaur.

 

October 26, 2021 - Rhodes

This Greek island just off the coast of Turkey exudes beauty and history. Take a walking tour of the old fortified city and stand in awe of the impressive Grand Master's Palace. See where the Colossus of Rhodes, a onetime Wonder of the World, once stood and savor the charm of this remarkable walled town. Along the scenic coast lies the whitewashed town of Lindos with its ancient acropolis and stunning views.

 

October 27, 2021 - Mykonos

Mykonos is a classic Greek Island with whitewashed houses, blue-domed churches and windmills. Add a reputation for beautiful beaches and you'll understand why Mykonos is the most popular island in the Cyclades. Explore the island in a 4 x 4 or take a ferry to the tiny island of Delos. 

 

October 28, 2021 - Olympia, Katakolon 

This quaint little seaside town on the Ionian Sea is the gateway to Ancient Olympia, where Greek mythology was born and the first Olympiad was held. You may still be able to hear the distant echoes of the ancient Greeks cheering as you tour the ruins of one of the most important and exciting sanctuaries of antiquity.

 

October 29, 2021 - Corfu

One of the lushest of the Greek Isles, Corfu is rimmed in dramatic blue waters and topped with tranquil hillside villages. A collection of quaint cafes in the town of Corfu feels very continental, but the island's secluded coves and sandy beaches could only be found in the Greek Isles.

October 30, 2021 - Santorini, Greece

Whitewashed villages clinging to the sides of the sea cliffs have made the volcanic island of Santorini one of the most widely photographed places in the world. The island's charm and subtle mystery have even made it a target of speculation as the location of the lost city of Atlantis.

 

October 31, 2021 - Disembark the Pearl in Athens (Piraeus), Greece 6:00 am Arrival

This is the cradle of civilization, the oldest city in Europe. Not only is this city home to the Acropolis and some of the most important architectural structures and archaeological finds in the Western world, It is also a very modern city, an urban amalgam of extraordinary art, culture, cuisine and shopping.

 

Welcome back to Athens!

About The Speaker:

 

Fr. Tim Meier

 

 

Fr. Tim Meier, SJ, is currently the Full-Time Support Chaplain for the California Military Department at the California National Guard's Joint Force Headquarters in Sacramento. He has remained sober since September 1979 and has been active in giving retreats for people in 12-Step recovery programs for more than 25 years. His retreat ministry began in 1990 with an internship under the direction of Fr. Tom W in Oakland, California. Tim led, on average, ten recovery retreats per year around North America prior to joining the military in 2006 -- in his 50s, with no prior service. Since 2008 Fr. Tim has deployed overseas in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Joint Guardian, and Operation Enduring Freedom (twice). During his combat deployment to Iraq in 2008 he had over 200 missions "outside the wire" -- without a weapon.
Tim earned post-secondary degrees in music and biology (Kalamazoo College); philosophy (Loyola, Chicago); immunology (Georgetown); theology and divinity (Weston Jesuit School of Theology), and molecular neurobiology (Stanford). His doctoral dissertation, in part, looked at aspects of traumatic brain injury. He has pursued further studies of traumatic stress injuries and diseases at Fort Sam Houston since joining the Army. In 1982, when he was almost 3 years sober, he spent the summer at the Vatican Astronomical Observatory in Castel Gandolfo, Italy where he identified over 700 late-type red giant stars near the center of our galaxy, and sang solo, a cappella, for His Holiness, Pope John Paul II during Mass in his private chapel. John Paul II was declared a saint in 2014.

Fr. Tim Meier recently retired as a Chaplain in the US Army and is a priest at a Parish in Los Angeles, Ca. He has remained sober since September 1979 and has been active in giving retreats for people in 12-Step recovery programs for more than 25 years. His retreat ministry began in 1990 with an internship under the direction of Fr. Tom W in Oakland, California.
