Oberammergau Passion Play 2020
The 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play has been postponed by the Oberammergau authorities as a result of COVID-19 and has been rescheduled to begin in May 2022.
With the postponing of the Oberammergau Passion Play, Collette and FJ Tours, LLC have decided to move both our July 2020 and September 2020 tours to 2022 as well. The exact dates for the tours will be announced soon.
Confirmed guests who are scheduled to travel to Oberammergau for the Passion Play on either of our July 20, 2020 or September 13, 2020 tours were sent a letter by postal mail on March 31, 2020, which detailed all the options available to guests regarding this postponement.
The information regarding confirmed guests' selection of postponement to 2022 or cancellation of their 2020 tours was transmitted to Collette for processing on April 24, 2020. Collette has advised that for those guests requesting cancellation the refunds will be issued according to how the original payment was made to Collette, as follows:
- for credit card payments, the refund will be issued as a credit to the card credit in approximately 30 days
- for cash/check payments, the refund will be issued by check in approximately 40 days
If you have questions, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We kindly ask confirmed guests not to call the tours' sponsor, the Office of Radio & Television/WJMJ Radio, regarding this postponement as they have no additional information.
Please pray for all those infected with COVID-19 and their families, and for all the doctors, nurses, healthcare workers, first responders and EMS personnel who are working day and night to care for them. Also, please don't forget our truck drivers who are working so hard to keep our supply lines open and our store shelves restocked.
