Parish Anniversaries

Celebrating your 25th, 50th, or 75th Parish Anniversary? For nearly three decades, we have helped parishes celebrate their milestone anniversaries with a celebratory and fun-packed pilgrimage abroad. Allow us to help in your next parish anniversary celebration.

To celebrate your parish anniversary in real style, consider organizing a one-of-a-kind pilgrimage – a pilgrimage carefully matching your parish name and intimately related to your parish’s anniversary celebration.

At Catholic Travel Centre, we have helped many parishes to customize a deeply meaningful pilgrimage as a way to celebrate an important milestone in the parish history.

Itinerary planning
Based on your needs, we can plan an itinerary with you that:

  • highlights the spiritual nature of your trip, but also
  • leaves plenty of time to visit the major tourist sites and
  • has plenty of time to explore cities on your own.

Of course, you can have Mass scheduled daily for your group, and CTC can arrange the altars each day for Mass, exclusively for your group.

Arrangements we make for you
Airline reservations, hotels, buses, guides, daily private Masses and much more are handled by the CTC Team – a group of seasoned travel professionals. For a full listing, click here to see What CTC Does for Group Leaders.
