Pilgrimage


#1

How would someone plan a pilgrimage? I’m contemplating a pilgrimage trip to Fatima, Lourdes, Rome and Jerusalem in a couple years and I want to know how someone would plan one. Would you go with friends, on a guided tour, an independent tour? Are there processions and special events? Where would you stay, a hotel, a youth hostel (if you’re a student), etc? How about a backpacking trip? I’m contemplating a combination of backpacking and a pilgrimage. Also, how can you save money while over there?

Well, there are several ways to pilgrimage, to plan it. You could start with your diocese paper and look at all the pilgrimage ads run by Father Thus-And-So. You could call your diocese, or a travel agent. You could put it together yourself, using the Internet for rates, reservations, and information.
