Join Franciscan University Pilgrimages as we visit destinations throughout the world where faith is strengthened, spirits are encouraged, and souls are renewed. With Franciscan friars and expert guides, you will have the opportunity to learn more about our Catholic heritage and its roots. We walk where saints once tread. We visit shrines where amazing acts of faith were lived out. We experience the depth and richness of our Catholic traditions in a way that can only be experienced by visiting these holy places.


Why a Franciscan University Pilgrimage?

Father Michael Scanlan, TOR, president emeritus and founder of our Journeys program, now called "Franciscan University Pilgrimages," talks about what makes a Pilgrimage with Franciscan University special.
