Join us on a Marian Pilgrimage Tour with Pilgrimage Chaplain Fr. Art Alban on May 8-25, 2023. This journey with our faith follows the path of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Italy, France, Monaco, Spain, and Portugal.
Apparitions and miracles related with the Blessed Virgin Mary are at the heart of Marian Pilgrimages. Our Lady of Fátima, Our Lady of Lourdes, The Sanctuary of the Black Virgin of Montserrat, and The Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, all in Zaragoza, Spain, are among the most popular Marian pilgrimage destinations.
Whether you want to soak in Lourdes’ healing spring water, hear the narrative of Virgin Mary’s visit to three children, Lcia Santos, Jacinta, and Francisco Marto, or listen to Gregorian Chants in Montserrat, each location offers a unique benefit.
