Catholic Pilgrimages to Spain and Portugal

On Catholic pilgrimage tours to Spain and Portugal, the followers of Jesus Christ have been making pilgrimages to the Marian Shrines of Spain and Portugal for well over a thousand years.

A Deeper Understanding of the Bible, the Trinity and Christian faith

The Bible, the Trinity, and even our Christian faith will take on new depths of religious meaning as we take in this Holy Land, from its sacred sites of Eucharistic miracles and those centering on the Virgin Mary, to magnificent basilicas and cathedrals with their timeless works of art, from its humble convents, to scenes from early Christianity in the region and the lives of its beloved Saints.

The Miracle of Our Lady of Fátima

As we behold a host of unforgettable places, we will experience many life-changing masses and Holy Communions along the way, like in Fátima, where as many as four million people annually visit the Shrine of Our Lady of Fátima because they are drawn by the miraculous reports of three local shepherd children who in 1917 saw the Virgin Mary, and where Pope John Paul II credited Our Lady of Fátima with saving his life during an assassination attempt in 1981.

St Theresa of Avila

We will travel the narrow streets of Santiago di Compostela to find the shrine of St. James, and to Alba de Tormes in western Spain to see the burial place of St. Teresa of Avila (1515-1582). We will see Loyloa, the birthplace of St Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Jesuits, and we will visit St. Anthony’s Church, to honor St. Anthony, who is known as a marriage saint and associated with locating lost objects! All this and much more await us on our faith journey to Spain and Portugal.

The Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church in Knoxville has done several tours over the last 15 years with our good friend Paul Lam and his company. We have taken a "Footsteps of Paul" tour to Greece and Italy, visited the Holy Land and also had the marvelous experience of seeing the Passion Play in Oberammergau in 2000, visiting some other parts of Europe. We can attest that Paul Lam and his fine company have always done an excellent job with our tours and go out of their way to make sure that we are happy in every aspect. I highly recommend Faith Journeys!
