"Until I went on this pilgrimage I felt like I was just going through the motion of my Catholic faith; it's hard to put into words how this has changed me." -Mary G., parishioner, Diocese of Joliet

 

"You and your organization did an amazing job of corralling us so many times to get on the bus. You remind me of our Shepherd..." -Susie S. 

 

"I thought their coordination of large groups was excellent. The work they did to coordinate multiple bus pick ups and drop offs throughout the state of New Hampshire was a huge project and it went off without a hitch and they were easy to work with. I highly recommend them." -Rev. Jonathan Gaspar

"Though those three days went far more quickly than I or anyone of the other pilgrims would have liked, the memories will be with me always. On behalf of a grateful Diocese, thank you again ..." -Bishop Peter Libasci

 

"I personally want to thank your guides for making my trip very enjoyable. I had a chance to share little bit about my life with them and they also shared part of their family joys with me." -Jerry C.

 

"What a great gift it has been to walk where Jesus and Mary walked, to pray at her various Shrines where she
brings us closer to Him, and to visit places made holy by the martyrs and saints. I look forward to our next pilgrimage together!" -Fr. Jeremy Paulin, OMV

 

"The Magnificat conference was a grace-filled time well organized by Canterbury Pilgrimages. ...Our hotel and transportation were top notch and the communication about the conference details was excellent." -Teresa S.

Feedback from past affinity group

pilgrims:

 

"The Magnificat conference was a grace-filled time well organized by Canterbury Pilgrimages.  It was a blessing to visit the D.C. churches for daily masses. The two highlights for me personally were the time spent at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception and the visit to the Saint John Paul II shrine where we could venerate a first class relic, visit the museum and attend mass.  Our hotel and transportation were top notch and the communication about the conference details was excellent. Thank you!" -Teresa S.

 

"Thank you for such a beautiful experience. It was a very spiritual event, especially the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception in which I had a great sacrament of reconciliation thru her intercession. St. John Paul II visitation topped the whole peregrinate. God Loves you." -Mirtha V.

 

"You and your organization did an amazing job of corralling us so many times to get us on the bus. You remind me of our Shepherd and I don't believe you lost sheep during that weekend. I felt it was very organized. Great communication and just a sense of joy being around your family was very uplifting. I know you were tired. I hope it was worth it." -Susie S.

The purpose of pilgrimage is not to go on tour and see holy sites. The purpose of pilgrimage is to obtain grace in an extraordinary way. 

 

 

Saint John Paul II was known as the Pilgrim Pope, visiting over 180 holy sites during his pontificate.

 

 

Pilgrimages are biblically based. Abraham was the perennial pilgrim.

 

 

The Holy Family was making their pilgrimage to Jerusalem when Jesus Christ was born.

 

 

Shrines uniquely offer a memory, a presence, and a proof of the living God.

 

 

Jesus lived a continual pilgrimage during his journey to the cross.
