We Made the Cover: Catholic Digest!

Friends, we’re excited to share news that Pilgrim Center of Hope is featured in the cover story of Catholic Digest – June/July/August 2017 issue!

Deacon Gene Townsend, a Board of Directors member and a Group Leader for our Ministry of Pilgrimages, applied his journalistic expertise to write an article called, “A Pilgrimage or a Religious Tour?” His piece highlights the Pilgrim Center of Hope’s focus on ministry and the true meaning of pilgrimage, while providing general tips on various Catholic pilgrimage destinations.

We are grateful to God, to Deacon Gene, Catholic Digest, and all who have contributed their gifts and talents to spread the ‘good news’ about Pilgrim Center of Hope’s Ministry of Pilgrimages.

A favorite quote:

To go on pilgrimage is not simply to visit a place or admire its treasures of nature, art, or history. To go on pilgrimage really means to step out of ourselves in order to encounter God where he has revealed himself, where his grace has shone with particular splendor and produced rich fruits of conversion and holiness among those who believe.
