the way

Welcome to students of Steubenville Gaming (Austria) and all others. Let's begin this Road to Emmaus today! Here are the next steps...

Preparation Checklist

  1. COMMUNICATION: Once we receive your deposit, we’ll invite you to a Whatsapp group to notify when we send emails, for deadline or date reminders, etc. Download the app on your phone. Please only practical messages and responses. Please read carefully the webpage updates emails, either from beatitudesmissions@g or anthony.beatitudes@g (Fr. Anthony).

  2. PURCHASE FLIGHTS! The sooner you purchase, the lower the price.

    • Gaming students must book Friday, October 6th, 6:15am Ryan Air from Vienna arrive Tel Aviv 10:40am. 

    •  Departures: Saturday, October 14th, 14:10pm Tel Aviv arrive Vienna 17:00pm. 

    • Once you have purchased your flights, please fill out this form. 

  3. BAGGAGE. Checked baggage and carry-ons will both have a fee on the low-cost airlines. The cost will be the same when you book the ticket until a day before the flight, so it is ok to wait and add baggage once you know how much you need. Measure well your bag's length and weight and add and pay for luggage before going to to the airport to avoid extra fees. It is possible to store something at Emmaus upon arrival and pick it up when we stop there on the last day. For example, this could be valuables, a suitcase if you are renting a backpack, etc. 

  4. INSURANCE. Non-Gaming pilgrims, please purchase "Trip Protection" when you purchase your flight. Gaming students, your insurance is included under your Gaming coverage, so if you purchase flight insurance, this is mainly to change or reimburse your flight more easily if problems come up. Up to you! In case of cancellation, Beatitudes Missions will refund for the trip according to the percentage on the policy listed on our site, however we will not refund your deposit or your flight.

  1. FUNDRAISING (optional): here are tips and the model of a letter you are welcome to send to friends and family. You can add your name to it, or ask us to do so and we’ll send you a pdf.  

  2. Mark your calendar to JOIN our PREPARATION ZOOMS: times are listed on the page you applied from, others TBA, including a final meeting where all will gather in Gaming and leaders will tune in via zoom.​​
