Thank you for visiting Mater Dei Tours. It is our mission to help bring souls closer to God by providing Catholic Pilgrimages to some of the world's most memorable and faith-inspiring sites.
Our official pilgrimages are accompanied by a Catholic Priest and our experienced Tour Escorts. A spiritual program consisting daily Mass, daily Rosary, Chaplet of Divine Mercy, Meditations and the Sacrament of Reconciliation compliment every pilgrimage. Although we are very authentic about our pilgrimages, Mater Dei also likes to combine history, culture and lots of fun with every tour as well.

Pilgrimage to California in the Footstep of Saint Junipero Serra!
In honor of the recent Canonization of Saint Junipero Serra by his Holiness, Pope Francis, during his visit to the United States, we are proud to announce the production of another wonderful USA pilgrimage. Don't miss this great opportunity to learn about the historical beginnings and planting of our Faith on the west coast of the United States. This is your chance to visit and pray at the Missions of California on an organized Catholic Pilgrimage! Many of these Missions were founded by Saint Junipero Serra, OFM ~The Apostle of California~, who became the inspiration and driving force for the 21 Missions in our present State of California. Our Pilgrimage visits what were originally the Alta (Upper) California Missions, starting in San Diego (city which originated as Mission San Diego de Alcala) and ending in the Sonoma wine country (Mission of San Francisco Solano) north of the city San Francisco (which was founded as the Mission of San Francisco de Asis or St. Francis of Assisi). This spectacular spiritual and historical journey starts on March 28th and ends on April 7th, 2016. Join us as we travel from San Diego, through San Juan Capistrano, Los Angeles, Santa Barbara, Monterey Peninsula, including Carmel-by-the-Sea, San Francisco, Sonoma and San Rafael California.
