Catholic Pilgrimages

Hello Everyone!

I have a desire to go on a pilgrimage to either the Holy Land or to Fatima. I am thinking about going in May-June. Which pilgrimage do you recommend and what company do you recommend traveling with?

And any advice you’d like to offer relating to Catholic Pilgrimages would be great!

Thank You so much!

My wife gave me a holy land pilgrimage with Fr. Mitch Pacwa as a birthday gift. The Lord had other ideas. My cancer relapsed and Fr. Mitch developed heart trouble. :sigh:

Nothing at all against Fatima, but I would go with the holy land, as physically and historically, there is so much more there. The scriptures will really come to life.


Thank You!

And I am so sorry about your illness. I will be praying for you and Fr. Mitch.

While I haven’t been to either of those two places, I highly recommend 206 Tours, as I went with them to World Youth Day 2016 in Kraków and was impressed with what they offered. A good number of high-profile Catholic figures use this company, as Jason Evert was on our pilgrimage and as Scott Hahn does a yearly pilgrimage to the Holy Land (Chris Stefanick also has one for next June).

Thank you. I am sustained by prayer.


Holy Land is going to be pretty hot that time of year. Better to go to Holy Land in the early spring (March-April) or in the fall. I went to Holy Land last October and let’s just say it was still quite hot, it is a desert after all. Go to Fatima instead if you want to go sometime in May-June. Also, see if you can find a local parish that is going and join their group, it will likely be cheaper and the parish usually gets some benefit from sponsoring the trip.

Your Diocese also has tours happening at parishes.
