A Special Announcement from Fr. Don:
My name is Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, and I am a priest with the Marian Fathers of the Immaculate Conception. I currently live in Steubenville, Ohio, and serve as the Vicar Provincial and Vocation Director for my religious community.
You probably found this website because you are thinking and praying about going on a Catholic pilgrimage. That’s wonderful! You’ve come to the right place! I love pilgrimages, and want to tell you about 206 Tours and the many pilgrimages that I lead every year.
As you know, a pilgrimage is a very special and unique journey. It’s a time of prayer that helps a person draw closer to heaven, especially by visiting holy sites associated with Jesus, Mary, and the saints. Whether you are praying about going on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Poland, Fatima, Lourdes, Guadalupe, Rome, or another holy site, a pilgrimage is meant to help you experience a deeper conversion and assure you of God’s merciful love. In a General Audience in 2011, Pope Benedict XVI spoke of the essence of why we go on pilgrimage. He said: “Pilgrimage is an expression of religious devotion that is nourished by prayer.” Trust me, once you go on pilgrimage, your life – especially your prayer life – will never be the same!
For many years now, I have been leading pilgrimages to various holy sites around the world. The pilgrimage agency that I work with is 206 Tours. Founded in 1985, 206 Tours is the best Catholic pilgrimage agency available. Hey, you know you are doing something right when respectable people like Scott Hahn and Jim Caviezel use your company to go on pilgrimage!
There are many reasons why I so highly recommend 206 Tours. For starters, they are extremely Catholic. Each pilgrimage is a truly prayerful journey, filled with devotions, daily Mass, and holy experiences. The guides on each pilgrimage are very knowledgeable, the itineraries are exceptional and comprehensive, the hotels are wonderful and centrally located, and every detail of your pilgrimage is well planned out and executed. From airplane flights to bus rides and meals, 206 Tours goes above and beyond to make your pilgrimage one of the best experiences of your life. My own mother only goes on pilgrimage with 206 Tours!
