International recognition for Ministry of Pilgrimages

We are thrilled to announce that Turismo de Portugal, the national tourism authority of Portugal, has recognized Pilgrim Center of Hope and our outstanding Group Leaders, Chris Remmert and Jeannie Townsend, with a sponsored invitation to the upcoming International Workshop for leaders in religious travel.

Chris is able to accept this invitation; she will give a presentation about how Pilgrim Center of Hope’s unique ministry allows pilgrims to deeply experience the holy sites. She and Jeannie were 2 of only 8 U.S. participants in the 2016 IV International Workshop! If you’ve ever wanted to go to Fatima, you’ll definitely want to journey with our expert Group Leaders.

In fact, a few seats are now available on our Pilgrimage to Fatima, Shrines of Portugal, and Santiago de Compostela (March 20-31) with Chris, Jeannie, and Spiritual Director Fr. Jonathan Felux! Come celebrate the 100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima with this unique pilgrimage. Want to claim those seats? Let us know! Call (210) 521-3377.

Chris & Jeannie will be offering your prayer intentions at Fatima and the other holy sites. Please email us or stop by the Center with your petitions before March 17. We’ll provide you with a pamphlet about days to venerate Our Lady of Fatima’s statue at Pilgrim Center of Hope this summer and fall.
