Do we have to be Catholics for your trips?

No, you do not have to be a Catholic – but this is a very Catholic-oriented pilgrimage. Steve will be explaining the Catholic faith and sharing about the holy sites in light of the Catholic faith — just as he does in his Footprints of God video series.

We celebrate daily Mass, pray the Rosary, and more. Though one does not have to be a practicing Catholic, one must be able to participate in a thoroughly Catholic event without hindering or stifling the worship, teaching and prayers of the other pilgrims. We welcome and respect everyone and we expect the same courtesy.

What about Wheelchairs and Handicapped Access?

Unfortunately most of the lands where we travel are not handicapped accessible. We have tried in the past an it just didn’t work and became a great inconvenience for the whole group. So we cannot bring folks dependent on a wheelchair, walker or other such device. We request that pilgrims be able to walk at least 1/2 mile and able to navigate stairs, some short inclines and getting on and off the bus frequently.

Can we bring small Children?

Due to the schedule and the nature of a pilgrimage we are unable to accommodate children under six years old. We are always delighted to have older children come with us as long as they are well-behaved. Some of our pilgrimages include discounts for children under 12.

What about languages, money, time differences, food, electricity, weather, clothing to wear?

These are just a few of the hundreds of questions we receive on a regular basis. We have prepared answers to all these and many other questions for your in our special pre-pilgrimage letters you receive before your departure.
