Holiday Market, 9 am – 4 pm
Gourmet Luncheons, 11 am & 1 pm
After the holiday market opens at 9 am, guests will gather for gourmet luncheons catered by Ruffino’s on the River. French carols and prayers are sung by lower school students at the Academy and Berchmans, and don’t forget the raffle — lots of amazing prizes and so much fun! These luncheons typically sell out, so advanced reservations are strongly recommended. Shopping guests can also enjoy student carolers in the Chapel and tours of our holy Shrine, the site of the miracle of St. John Berchman’s healing apparition of novice Mary Wilson.
