Pilgrimages

What is a pilgrimage with the Home of the Mother like? Are you looking for an intense experience that isn’t just another sightseeing trip? Are you interested in traveling around visiting well-known religious sites, to witness first-hand where saints have lived radically and intensely for their faith? Have you ever wanted to meet other young people who share the same values that you possess? 

chicoA pilgrimage with the Home clarifies the connection between living a life completely for God and having true happiness. The spirit of joyful self-giving and abandonment to God’s will manifests itself in any given moment, whether it be sharing personal experiences, dining road-side style, sleeping where you can, learning to serve others…
