Most Rev. Paul EtienneArchdiocese of Anchorage

Thank you for being a part of our ongoing spiritual awakening. Our Catholic faith is amazing and through our pilgrimages with you, we have been witness to more than we could have ever dreamed.

Tony & Cindy HernandezPilgrims

How can I begin to thank you for leading me on a pilgrimage of profound hope? Not only was I able to see firsthand where Jesus lived, died and rose, but I also experienced a deepening of my relationship with Him and His Blessed Mother. You were such kind, patient, and wise guides! May God bless you for all you do for the Church!

Pilgrim Center of Hope is doing well in their utilization of mass media to promote Christ’s message and to proclaim the Gospel to everyone who can hear it and see it. I started working with them, and less than three years later, I joined the seminary. They paved the way for me in understanding what’s possible—what sort of joy is possible as Christian disciples and people devoted to evangelization.

Fr. Michael EnglishParochial Vicar, Holy Trinity Church

As a ministry leader, I am thankful that I can turn to Pilgrim Center of Hope for media content that is reliable, credible, and shared from the hearts of their Missionaries of Hope staff. All of the media created by PCH is innovative and inspiring, and I encourage many people to utilize the tools they offer to share the light of Christ with others.
