pilgrimage travel packages

This eight (8) day Catholic Pilgrimage to Lourdes visits one of the most sacred sites in the world where Apparitions of Our Lady, the Blessed Virgin Mary, occurred. Lourdes is a special place of grace visited by millions each year where Pilgrims attend Mass, go to Confession, and Pray the Rosary in nightly candlelight processions. Get acquainted with the life of Saint Bernadette in the very places where she lived and prayed. In 1858, St. Bernadette witnessed eighteen apparitions of Our Lady who revealed herself as the “Immaculate Conception”. In one of these miracles, Our Lady asked Bernadette to drink from the spring as an act of penance which resulted in the spring’s muddy water turning clear. Since then, Pilgrims have been visiting the beautiful Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes seeking healing and conversion from the Lourdes baths. Almost every part of the Shrine is accessible by wheelchair; six million pilgrims visit this holy place of healing each year!

Following this prayerful experience, you will return to your hotel for an overnight.

Days 3 & 4: Lourdes (Guided)

Over the next two days, you will stay in a small town, nestled within the Pyrenees Mountains. During your time in Lourdes, you will pray and meditate in a site of Our Lady’s apparitions. Our Lady first appeared to Bernadette in 1858, and announced herself as “The Immaculate Conception”, near the Grotto of Massabielle. During the first two apparitions, little Bernadette prayed the Rosary with Our Lady and left without any exchange of words. During the following apparitions, Our Lady emphasized God’s love for us, penance, and the necessity of performing acts of penance for sinners. Throughout your time in Lourdes, you will have the opportunity to attend Mass at the Grotto, where Our Lady appeared to Bernadette; watch a video presentation that explains in detail, the story of Lourdes;  participate with the gesture of the miraculous spring ; Wash your hands, wash your face and drink the water. Finish with a short prayer:  Our Lady of Lourdes…Pray for us St. Bernadette…Pray for us Oh Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee

Additionally, you will have the opportunity to experience Christ’s unconditional love, as you meditate upon the “life-size” Stations of the Cross that overlook the Grotto of Massabielle. In Lourdes, you will walk in and meditate upon the footsteps of St. Bernadette. Your group will have the opportunity to see Boly Mill, the birthplace of St. Bernadette, and the “Cachot,” an abandoned prison where Bernadette’s impoverished family lived. Each evening following dinner, you will have an opportunity to attend the candlelight procession and the Rosary, before a restful overnight.

Days 5 - 7: Lourdes

This pilgrimage was designed for those who would like to pray, reflect, and spend more time in Lourdes. As a result, your itinerary is planned accordingly. The first three days will be sightseeing with your group, Spiritual director, and Tour guide. The following three days will be dedicated to private prayer and reflection. During the latter part of your trip, you will have full discretion over how your time is spent in order to have the fullest spiritual experience possible. *There won’t be a Spiritual Director or tour guide with you for the last three days. However, English Mass daily will still be offered at the Basilica in Lourdes.

Day 8: Return Flights Home

After an early breakfast, your group will leave by motor coach and transfer to the Toulouse or Pau airport for return flights home.

Fr. Dan Dashner

Each day, early in the morning on this Holy Land Pilgrimage we were off and running. The driver of the van was a very safe and considerate driver who not only ensured that we arrived at all our assigned destinations on time, but he also ensured that there was plenty of water for all of us to drink as the weather was very hot and we needed to constantly hydrate our bodies. All Holy Site visits were well-planned, and our tour guide was well known by the guards and site coordinators and several occasions we were even granted head of line privileges.

Every day of our journey was fruitful and fulfilling and we were given the opportunity to visit and spend ample time at each site identified in the Catholic Journey Pilgrimage Brochure. In fact, we even visited some sites that were not scheduled and not offered in the itinerary. Confession and spiritual direction were announced as available and was provided as requested and the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was celebrated each day with the group. Every morning, on the tour motor coach, I led a recitation of The Holy Rosary or the Chaplet of Divine Mercy. Everybody joined in and I’m sure that our pilgrimage was blessed and especially protected by the Blessed Virgin Mother of God because during this pilgrimage, I was hit from behind by an electric motor bike. However, I was not seriously hurt and there were no injuries to the operator of the electric motor bike.

On the last day of the pilgrimage to Jerusalem, we went to the Via Dolorosa, and I led stations of the cross all the way to Golgotha where I was privileged to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

This Holy Land Pilgrimage was a dream come true for me because when I was ordained to the presbyterate, I was scheduled to go to the Holy Land This trip was on my bucket list of things I wanted to do and an answer to my prayer. Due to our very close group interaction and relationships, we developed with each other, we now have new spiritual families (members of our pilgrimage group). Each of the nine members of our group have called or texted me and each other and assured us of their prayers & support.

Words cannot express my gratitude to Catholic Journeys for giving me this great opportunity to go on pilgrimage to the Holy Land as group Spiritual Director. I commend Catholic Journeys for hiring knowledgeable guides and skilled driver for these pilgrimages. May God continue to Bless & Protect You and All Pilgrims that make this Extraordinary Journey to the Holy Land through Catholic Journeys.

Reverend Father Daniel L. Dashner,

Patrick and Linda

We went on pilgrimage to the Holy Land on 9/17 and returned 9/26. We celebrated our 30th Anniversary first by renewing our vows in Cana and spending last full day on our actual Anniversary with a special Mass at Golgotha and a visit to the Tomb.

Our guide was an extraordinary mix of historian, geography, religion and Shepherd! He kept us all safe and taken care of whatever we needed.

Our Priest, Father Dan, is now the head of our Pilgrimage Family and we are grateful to God and everyone at Catholic Journeys for making this possible!

The pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Holy Land was wonderful and David, our guide, was fantastic. I was amazed at his knowledge and wish I could have recorded the entire trip. Unfortunately I became ill on the flight over so wasn’t able to fully enjoy trip. Sadly I have been diagnosed with cancer and would appreciate prayers. My roommate was also wonderful to me. Please add me to your prayer list. ✝️🙏🙏🙏🙏

Margaret and Richard

Our pilgrimage to the Holy Land was amazing. Everything was perfect from the time we were picked up at the airport until the day we departed. We had the best tour guide David. I felt blessed each day by his vast amount of knowledge. We were able to gain access to the most beautiful basilicas and had Mass each day. I felt very cared for and safe the entire pilgrimage. I would recommend Catholic Journey to everyone who is considering a pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The pilgrimage to Jerusalem and the Holy Land was awesome despite the heat. Our guide was a wealth of knowledge. David, our tour guide was so passionate about his country and so willing to share his knowledge.

COVID 19 Updated April, 2021

Like companies around the world, Unitours has been working diligently to cope with the COVID pandemic. We continue to monitor conditions, regulations, and specific efforts each country, city and our partners are anticipating as the destinations prepare for reopening. All are anticipating that as the vaccines roll out, they will quickly adopt protocols to allow resumption of individual and group travel. We urge you to check back with this COVID update site as more specific information becomes available and we provide destination specific information that will help you keep up to date about the destination of most interest to you. Many of our clients have already booked their pilgrimages for later this year and into next. Here are some comments from some of those leaders. “As the vaccine roll out continues, I'm looking forward to two pilgrimages in 2022. Early in 2022 to the Holy Land and a couple of months later will be heading to Central Europe. I have found that those who enjoy going on pilgrimage are ready to travel and believe it is safe to do so. I have full confidence in Unitours, that come 2022 both pilgrimages will be safe and as enriching as ever before. I'm confident Unitours will be delivering high quality pilgrimages to meet the demand for those desiring to once again be enriched in their faith.” Fr. Mike, Diocese of Buffalo “I lead pilgrimages almost every year. Of course, in 2020, all my pilgrimages were canceled as well as two scheduled for 2021- the COVID threat is still on us and people do not yet feel safe to travel - especially in groups. Nevertheless, I have presently scheduled two pilgrimages for the summer of 2022. I believe that the feeling of threat will be over and am confident that many people will desire to travel. After having spent over a year in isolation and quarantine, we need to break out. And the great jewel of pilgrimage travel will call us: to go meet the Lord; to be on a search for God; to journey together. I have been fully vaccinated and encourage everyone to do so. We need to be safe -so that we can live in the Lord!” Msgr. Joe, Diocese of Brooklyn “Last year we planned a trip to Italy in August 2022 to follow the footsteps of St Augustine in Ostia, Rome, Milan and Pavia and then to the Passion Play in Germany. We have 18 persons committed to the trip who have paid their deposits. We could easily have 20 people committed by this summer, a year before we go. Just yesterday one of our pilgrims told me how excited he was and looking forward to it. I think he represents a lot of people who are excited, looking forward to getting away and confident it will be safe in August 2022!” Fr. Bill - Archdiocese of Philadelphia “We are beginning to see a strong desire for people to 're-connect' to their faith and tradition. Having canceled our last pilgrimage, we chose to prepare for our next one in the summer of 2022. Response has been extremely positive - over 1/2 full already. We have used Unitours and not only trust them but know we can rely on a professional and competent performance. I am sure we will have no problem filling our trip, being well cared for by Unitours and experiencing a blessed and memorable pilgrimage. Fr. Tony, Diocese of Orlando I will be leading a pilgrimage this fall and feel that this is the perfect time for one. So much progress has been made in our spiritual lives this past year. People want to continue deepening their relationship and friendship with Jesus and a pilgrimage is an ideal way to make this happen. People already feel safer and more confident about travelling, so this is no longer the issue it may have been even two or three months ago. I encourage anyone who is considering leading a pilgrimage to do so. Fr. Joe Archdiocese of Boston Finally, as a further update, we have posted a short news interview we gave to a New York Catholic News program “Current News on Net NY TV”.
