Catholic Heritage Pilgrimage

Discover the roots of our Catholic faith in the U.S. with Fr. Javier Nieva, DCJM. Visit the shrines of St. Kateri Tekakwitha, Divine Mercy, Our Lady of Czestochowa, and more. We’ll attend Mass every day, in locations as diverse as at St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Shrine of the Miraculous Medal, Sts. Peter and Paul (with Archbishop Chaput), and Queen of Apostles Parish (DCJM). Among other traditional historical sites, we’ll visit Ground Zero in New York City, and St. Paul’s chapel which miraculously survived 9/11 and served as a vital piece to the recovery and renewal of the area.

This trip is a pilgrimage rather than a “tour.” Each day will allow time for individual prayer, as well as Mass, morning and evening prayer. The cost is $3,186, which is inclusive of air, gratuities, breakfasts, and most dinners.
