Journey to the Heart of Mary
Catholic Pilgrimage to Marian Shrines
A pilgrimage to the Marian Shrines is a journey into the heart of Mary, our Blessed Mother. Your faith becomes more tangible in your daily life as you travel to the places where the Virgin Mary has appeared to guide her children, increase their faith, and bring them closer to her Son, Jesus. These special places of apparitions have grown the faith of millions over the centuries, as the message of faith and love that permeates these sites is timeless throughout all the ages.
“I went seeking Mary, and she showed me her Son.”
- Stephanie L., Marian Shrines Pilgrim
