A pilgrimage is a journey, often into an unknown or foreign place, where a person goes in search of something which can lead to a personal transformation through experience. (wikipedia)  Not everyone is the same, so not every pilgrimage will provide a personal transformation for anybody who experiences it.  If you desire to go on pilgrimage, you should find one that is right for you.  Some questions to answer to help in this decision are:

  • What do you want to get out of a pilgrimage?
  • Where do you want to go on pilgrimage?

If you want to be a part of the story behind the pilgrimage, I would recommend looking at our Italy: Easter pilgrimage, where you can experience a living Stations of the Cross, or our Italy: Christmas pilgrimage, where you can attend a re-enactment of the Nativity scene.  If you wish to visit a place of heritage, we not only go to Italy, but to England and Ireland as well.  But during these times of trial and quarantine, there is also a way to go on pilgrimage from where you are.  We now offer the option of a virtual pilgrimage for those who would prefer not to go too far.  No matter your reason for going, whatever your condition in life, I am sure we have a pilgrimage for you.
