Pilgimage to Cathedral of Venerable Baraga, Michigan U.P.
Past Pilgrimages
  • A fantastic survey of our previous pilgrimages... much of it is still under construction. Our last pilgrimage was in 2015; we visited the shrines of the Jesuit Martyrs and St. Kateri in New York. 
  • Read testimonies, see our prayer book the Pathfinder, check out previous brochures and posters, even schedules and required forms... it will give you an idea of our experience with youth pilgrimages.
