Upcoming Pilgrimages

Each year Roy leads one or two pilgrimages to the Holy Land which highlight the Jewish roots of the Catholic Church and emphasize prayer.  The next one, November 8-18, 2022, is now open for registration.

Roy's pilgrimages are distinctive in that all aspects are designed around prayer:

  • Our Priest is a Religious (Franciscan), and a former hermit (i.e. "hard-core")

  • Most Masses will be in the Tridentine Rite (Latin).

  • All of our accommodations will be within walking distance of major shrines -- the Grotto of the Annunciation in Nazareth, the Mount of Beatitudes in Galilee, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem -- allowing for the possibility of additional prayer at these holy sites, particularly in the early morning or evening when they tend to be empty.

  • The group will be exceptionally small, limited to a maximum of 30 pilgrims. Other pilgrimage groups to the Holy Land usually aim for at least 50, and frequently can be 200 or more. The small group results in a more prayerful and intimate atmosphere and greater access to the holy places.

Please do not hesitate to contact Roy (details on to email him are here -- please put "pilgrimage" in the subject line of the email) with questions to help you determine whether this is the right pilgrimage for you.

Questions on registration, costs, payments, deadlines, airline flights, etc. should be directed to the "travel agency" Tekton Ministries (again, details on how to are below) which is handling those matters.
