Bishop of Manchester
I want to take this opportunity to extend my personal thanks, as well as the collective thanks of the Diocese of Manchester, to you and the rest of the Canterbury staff. The cards and letters and the enthusiastic thanks we received (for weeks following) are sure testimony that our recent diocesan pilgrimage to celebrate the 350th Jubilee of Notre Dame Cathedral in Quebec City was a huge success! Thanks to the recommendation of my priest-secretary Father Jason Jalbert who worked with your team previously, and my recollection of the splendid pilgrimage to the National Shrine in Washington, D.C. which you provided for us, we knew you could do this for us! Right from the start you and your staff were available for meetings, responded to telephone calls without delay, worked closely with Father Jalbert and Father Richard Dion, and our diocesan support staff. The flyer your office developed was done very tastefully and the efficiency of the follow-up with each and every Pastor in our Diocese was incredible. As promotion of the Pilgrimage to Quebec continued and I saw how many Pastors were getting on board with this worthwhile event, I knew it would be a success.
MOST REVEREND JAMES S. WALL
Bishop of Gallup
I had the privilege to serve as chaplain on a pilgrimage along the California Mission Trail with Patrick Madrid and Immaculate Heart Radio, which was hosted by Canterbury Pilgrimages. It was a wonderful pilgrimage, and thoroughly Catholic. Canterbury Pilgrimages’ staff were extremely helpful both prior to the pilgrimage and during, and seamlessly led our group of 150 people from San Diego to San Francisco, stopping at each mission on the way. Our hotels were superb, and we enjoyed hearty meals at high quality restaurants each evening. Most importantly, Canterbury Pilgrimages provided the best environment for my fellow pilgrims and me to encounter the Living Christ along our journey. We were able to celebrate daily Mass at the missions, and each pilgrim left the pilgrimage spiritually refreshed and inspired. Our pilgrimage was truly the adventure of a lifetime. If one wants to make a pilgrimage in order to grow in his or her Catholic faith, then I highly recommend Canterbury Pilgrimages.
Thank you very much for all that you did to organize and assist with the Archdiocese of Denver Year of Faith pilgrimage to Mexico City. I am personally grateful for your considerable time and effort in making the trip a successful and prayerful experience.
It was a joy for me to lead the pilgrimage and it was truly a blessing for all those who participated.
MOST REVEREND SAMUEL J. AQUILA
Archbishop of Denver
It's with joy, confidence and gratitude that I write this letter of recommendation for you and Canterbury Pilgrimages & Tours Inc. As a vocations director I'm often reminded how powerful pilgrimages can be in inspiring people to greater holiness and particularly young men and women to religious life and young men to the priesthood.
A very major part of my own call came to me while on a pilgrimage with Canterbury Pilgrimages &Tours back in 1997. Each pilgrimage I have made, led and shared with others, has increased my faith and deepened my personal relationship with God. It's amazing how blessed we all feel, both during and after the pilgrimages. 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!
REVEREND JEREMY PAULIN, OMV
Director of Vocations, Oblates of the Virgin Mary
Canterbury tours is a very good travel and tour agency and I would highly recommend them. I was with them in Quebec, where they organized a pilgrimage for nearly 500 people. They are a great Catholic family so they understand the meaning of a pilgrimage.
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.
REVEREND JONATHAN GASPAR
Priest Secretary to Cardinal Seán O'Malley
Canterbury Pilgrimages created a wonderful adventure for our group. Our accommodations, transportation, guides and drivers were excellent. The meals were amazing and a great introduction to local culture. Everything came together for us as we explored Poland and walked in the footsteps of St. Maximilian Kolbe, St. Faustina, and St. John Paul II. Our visits to the Shrine of Divine Mercy, the salt mines of Krakow and tombs of the Kings and Queens of Poland created many life-time memories. Poland is a land of Knights and Dames, Kings and Queens, Saints and even the dragon of Krakow.
Our Canterbury Pilgrimage was an exciting experience of history and holiness. Thank you!
REVEREND BRENDAN ROLLING, O.S.B.
Canterbury Pilgrimages is the best! I can't thank them enough for the fantastic job they did planning and coordinating all the logistical details for my parishioners and I to have a memorable and life-changing pilgrimage. We were kept informed of all the pre-trip planning and then our guide met us at the airport when we arrived and took care of all our needs until we got on the plane 10 days later. My parishioners all had a wonderful experience and although they thanked me for all I did, in truth I had the easy part. Canterbury Pilgrimages made it easy, fun and meaningful for all of us.
REVEREND WILLIAM MCNEELEY
Pastor - Our Lady of Fatima Parish, Alcoa, TN
Many thanks for all your assistance in making our recently completed pilgrimage possible. The pilgrims have given many positive comments. Our guides, Sue and Doug were excellent. At some point, I'd like to have an initial conversation about a pilgrimage in the future.
REVEREND SCOTT A. EUVRARD
Pastor - Holy Family Parish & Star of the Sea Parish, MA
The pilgrimage to visit the Holy Shroud that my group and I went on was truly an inspiring journey that took us from Turin to the hills of Assisi to the Eternal City, adorned with so much beauty. Canterbury Pilgrimages provided us with two wonderful tour guides that were extremely helpful and always were willing to accommodate any needs that arose. The hotels that we stayed at were exquisite and the meals were definitely something to write home about. The pilgrims from the group still speak highly of the experience that they will cherish for a lifetime.
