“The Church is often referred to as a ‘Pilgrim Church.’ We are, therefore, a pilgrim people. What is a pilgrim? A pilgrim is one who is not going to stay here forever. We are on a journey to our eternal destination, to be with God. A pilgrimage reminds us of that fact. A pilgrimage differs from a vacation in that it is a journey of faith in the footsteps sanctified by the Lord Jesus or His saints. Nearly every major religion has pilgrimages. Perhaps the first Christian pilgrimage was that made by the Magi or the Wise Men who followed the star to Bethlehem which led them to the Infant Jesus. As a grown man, Jesus Himself considered it important enough to walk almost two weeks to take His disciples to Jerusalem. Today you can reach your pilgrimage destination in just hours! I highly recommend John Paul Pilgrimages and Tours as your choice when planning your pilgrimage. Family owned and operated for nearly thirty years, it is not simply a business but a ministry. Mark and his colleagues are highly qualified in their areas of expertise and are genuinely interested in each person on pilgrimage and eager to ensure everyone’s satisfaction. I strongly encourage everyone to make a pilgrimage at least once in their lifetime.”

Msgr. Vittorio Guerrera

Archdiocese of Hartford CT

“From beginning to end, working with John Paul Pilgrimages and Tours was a wonderful experience. The initial planning and advertising of the pilgrimage could not have been easier to do with the help of Mark Pierz. His excellent communication skills, attention to detail and passion for his work shine through. The best thing about working with John Paul Pilgrimages is their focus on the spiritual growth of the pilgrims that decide to go. Everything from flights, accommodations, tour guides, transportation and food was top notch at an affordable price. Thanks to the efforts of this pilgrimage company the group was able to come back refreshed, relaxed and more deeply in love with God. I look forward to working with John Paul Pilgrimages again and again and would, without reservation, recommend any person, group or church to utilize the expertise of this wonderful corporation.”

Rev. Matthew Alcombright

Director of the Office of Ministry with the Deaf, Diocese of Springfield, MA

“I have led a number of pilgrimages both personally and for the Diocese of Springfield and as a result have used many tour agencies.  While my experience has been generally good with all of the pilgrimages that I have taken, I found using John Paul Pilgrimages a step above the rest, in that, there was a personal dimension to the planning stages and execution of the trip.  Mark Pierz was attentive to every detail of the pilgrimage and was very much on top of things all the way through.  He was in constant communication with me as the pilgrimage leader and made sure that our pilgrims had the best experience from the beginning to the end.  I am pleased to be a client of John Paul Pilgrimages and will continue to do so in the future.”

Rev. Gary Dailey

Vocation Director, Diocese of Springfield, MA

How do I organize a group?

Easy!

Our group leaders are usually the group’s local priest or someone they designate. Because the itinerary and details are formed with group leader’s input, they are the main contact to the individuals who sign up. We provide all of the information and materials needed, and work with you in holding meetings with interested people before the group is formed, and more informational sessions to hold after parishioners have registered. Most of our leaders gather their groups without our assistance, and everyone who signs up is from their specific area. Some leaders ask that we open the group to anyone and we then list it online and make other advertisements. Organizers travel for free and oftentimes get additional seats for their friends or family dependent upon the size of the group and other factors. Remember, everything is customizable to your requests.

Check out our easy 6-step process to plan your next trip!

 JPPT caters specifically to groups of the faithful and the possibilities are endless. We do not schedule trips and then offer them to individuals around the globe, hoping to get enough people for a ‘quota’. Our trips are started with our organizer’s input. Our group leaders and organizers are your familiar priests or their designee. We meet with them not only by phone or email, but also in person. JPPT is well connected with airlines, hotel and restaurant owners, and our destinations themselves. We have a small number of very experienced tour guides contracted with our office, one of which will meet you at the airport, then stay with your group until you board your flight home. This is in addition to the many local guides and priests at specific destinations with whom we contract. Over 100,000 faithful have traveled with us, and over 2,000 priests in the last 25 years have led groups like yours with us on the most remarkable and exclusive journeys you can imagine.

We promise to outclass any company you have used before in price, quality, satisfaction and personal service. Our family is Catholic, and we use Catholic guides and resources, so you will not be in the Holy Land hearing the words ‘legend’ or ‘some believe a man named Jesus…’ from your guide, or, in Rome, hearing ‘these articles were stolen’. We don’t visit gift shops every day, or hear anti–Catholic comments from non–Catholic guides.
