May 27, 2017 Medjugorje Pilgrimage

Dear AnnMarie,

 The Medjugorje pilgrimage was wonderful…we hated to leave!!  First, it was an unforgettable spiritual experience – there are no words to accurately describe that.  Second, everything was so well arranged for us; from the accommodations, transfers, daily schedules and wonderful optional tours, we felt there was a very good balance of time between activity and reflection. Food was wonderful and we are especially thankful that our dietary requests were fully accommodated. We do not eat meat, which often poses a problem if there is a fixed meal/no menu to choose from.  But our host Ivicka asked about food preferences the day we arrived and his family provided fish for our evening entrees.  So thank you especially for that.

Cannot say enough about the superb job done by our guide Andrew Moulds, our host Ivicka and also all the local guides and drivers.  Their organization, hard work and caring made everything fall into place seamlessly.

We appreciate you too, AnnMarie!!  You were always courteous and responsive to us during the planning stages.  We understand how difficult it must be to plan a trip like this and field so many questions and requests!! 

With every best wish,

Tony and Julie

May 27, 2017 Medjugorje Pilgrimage

Oh my AnnMarie.  I can't even begin to tell you how amazing this spiritual journey was for me. I couldn't get over the outpouring of so many Christian  gathered together believing in God. 

My personal experience was awesome and it gave me hope that the world (although deteriorating as time goes by) isn't hopeless. 

Ivica and his family were amazing. Their food was delicious  the planning of things to do and just their kindness was unforgettable!  

I knew some of the folks from my parish including Father Frankie who we all love. But I also met some new people that I'm so happy to have met. 

Now my favorite person is Andrew who came in place of his grandmother who works for you guys. She sounds like an amazing lady and I can see why she has such an awesome grandkid. 

I am extremely happy with the way everything went down from the planning to receiving our backpack full of everything we would need to our flights all being on time and more importantly our luggage arriving with us. 

Thanks again for everything and I hope to travel with you guys again in the future. 

 God Bless

September 2016 "Faith & Food" Pilgrimage to the Holy Land  with Clarion Herald, Fr.  Ronnie Calkins, Chef John Besh and Peter Finney Jr.

Dear Jimmy,

It was great to meet & travel with you on our trip to the Holy Land.

Sherm & I want to thank you for organizing such an incredible Pilgrimage.. 

To answer your question, there is nothing either of us would change (except for more hours in the night to catch some zzzzzz's) 

The itinerary following in the footsteps of Christ & His Mother Mary really helped in my understanding of His/Her life on earth.

I continue to feel my faith deepening... a rebirth..

As for Sherm (a secular Jew) he said "I'm no convert but I was touch by the richness of the Catholic tradition/ceremony." I know he enjoyed this journey and was especially happy with the dining. : )

When Sherm finishes organizing his photos & finds anything exceptional, he'll post. 

We would be happy to share our great experience with Catholic Journeys w friends/family who are interested in traveling to the Holy Land or other religious sites. 

Now, we're heading to the gym to work off the incredible meals we had !

God Bless You, Jimmy

Holy Land Pilgrimage April 2016


First, I would like to thank our spiritual leader, Fr. Matthew, and our hosts Gay and George Hernandez for their exceptional leadership and knowledge of the Holy Land.  This was my first trip to the Holy Land and religious pilgrimage.  It was much more than what I expected it would be. I will never forget the first time I walked into Holy Sepulchre Church.  The emotion was overwhelming: seeing and touching the place of Jesus' crucifixion and burial; hearing the masses, the singing and chanting; the scent of incense and oils; and the people from all over the world coming together. Without a doubt our leaders, including our guide and driver, were exceptional, however, everyone in our group made our trip special. When I returned the question typically asked, "was it safe?"  Yes, I felt perfectly safe the whole time.

Thank you and your staff for a a great trip and hope to book another in the future.

We had absolutely wonderful experience! Felipe was great and he brought along his nephew to help since he was hobbling on his ankle. So informative and helpful. The hotel was superb with service that my kids really enjoyed.

I have already started to save for our next trip.

Thanks for everything.

Holy Land Notre Dame Pilgrimage  January 2015                                                                                                         


 Once again, the guys loved the Holy Land Pilgrimage.  They especially raved about the tour guide (Said), the Notre Dame Conference Center in Jerusalem, and being in Bethlehem on Epiphany for the celebration of Christmas. 

Thanks to you and Ann Marie for your work in facilitating such a blessed trip for the deacons.

 It’s time to think about next year’s January Pilgrimage.                       

Thanks; blessings,

Guadalupe & The Shrines of Mexico, November 2014

Hi Jimmy,  

You don't know this, but Maria spoke highly of you and how you gave her figures and a contract when other travel companies did not reply.  She was impressed with your fast and courteous business practice.  That was great to hear!

 Medjugorje & Rome Pilgrimage, October 2014                   

Dear AnnMarie,


The trip was amazing. The guides in Rome were amazing. Francesco made sure we had the best position to view Pope Francis! 


In Medjugorje, the host was very hospitable.  He was very accommodating in what we wanted to see.  Over all it was a memorable trip !

Thank you,


Michelle R.  Corrales, NM

Rome & Shrines of Italy Pilgrimage, October 2014

Hi AnnMarie

Margaret and I enjoyed the pilgrimage.  We were particularly thrilled to be part of the papal audience in St. Peter's Square and really see the pope.  We also liked the Vatican museum and St. Peter's Basilica.  I was awed by the Eucharistic Miracle of the monk who had doubts about the presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist. Seeing the five globules of coagulated blood and the flesh was life changing for me.  Padre Pio's old and new churches in San Giovanni Rotondo were impressive and so were St. Francis and St.Care's Basilicas.  The hotels were great and the food was super. You were awesome Thank you and God Bless.
