Trips & Retreats

Rabbi Ross, Rev. Nettie & Fr. Steve on a joyous day of arrival in Jerusalem
The Heart of Faith Caravan!


Our Heart of Faith Pilgrimage 2013 group in Manger Square in Bethlehem, 2013


Rev. Nettie has escorted pilgrims and people seeking healing to India, Israel & Brazil.

In 2013 she brought Rabbi Roger Ross, Fr. Stephen Porter and 17 pilgrims of different faiths on a journey to the Holy Land, traveling through Israel and seeing the holy sites through the eyes of the “other”, and right into the Heart of Faith.

Heart of Faith Pilgrimages is the name of Rev. Nettie’s pilgrimage site. New trips will be in the making, so if you are interested in keeping in touch with the opportunities for spiritual travel focused on healing, email to:

Rev. Nettie also takes people seeking healing to John of God’s Casa Dom Inacio in Brazil. These trips are always done under the auspices of two of the foremost Casa guides, Bob Dinga & Diana Rose of

Rev. Nettie does not have a trips scheduled in 2014, so John of God travel inquiries, please go to Bob & Diana’s site here for their schedule, and tell them “Nettie sent me!”  In my opinion, no one does a more thorough or better job of taking care of travelers to John of God in Abadiania, Brazil.



These lights are spirit phenomena that manifest on digital photography when great healing energy is present. I was walking back from evening prayers at the Casa Dom Inacio, Brazil, in 2011

Visit John of God in Brazil with Rev. Nettie! August 27th – Sept 8th, 2012!

• Have you always wanted to visit the great healer, John of God, but have put it off?

• Have you heard he comes to the USA regularly? This year he is not returning to the US, and there is no promise of his return.

But! You can come with me to Brazil to visit him and the wondrous center, the Casa Dom Inacio (House of St. Ignatius).
