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.

You may also view our testimonials, find out more about us and register for “The Pilgrim’s Way,” our newsletter (on the right column). And don't forget, Mater Dei specializes in providing parishes, choirs and private groups with their own custom spiritual journey to virtually any Vatican approved pilgrimage site.
It is our hope that every pilgrim returns home with a deeper love for Our Lord and His Church, and lives out their Christian vocation with renewed hope, joy and peace. So whether you are a past pilgrim or considering becoming one, we encourage you to enrich your life with travel that is relevant! Your travels will never be the same!
Omnes cum Petro, ad Iesum per Mariam! All with Peter, to Jesus through Mary!
Join Drew Mariani, from the Drew Mariani Show at Relevant Radio, on this beautiful pilgrimage to Italy to pray before the world famous Shroud of Turin! The original Shroud will be fully exposed for a limited time only this spring. Celebrate Divine Mercy Sunday in Italy! Visit Naples, Pompeii, Netunno, Anzio (American Cemetery), Rome, Lanciano, Manoppello, Loreto, Bologna, Milan and Turin! This pilgrimage will visit 1 Eucharistic Miracle (Lanciano, the oldest Eucharistic Miracle in the Church - where the Host became human heart tissue)! We stay one night near the blue Adriatic Sea area, after visiting Manoppello, reputed to house Veronica's Veil!

A great spiritual visit to Nazareth is experienced when you enter the Holy House of Loreto, housing the Virgin Mary’s Home from Nazareth! Have you ever witnessed an incorrupt body? Join us and you will see for yourself Pray before St. Catherine of Bologna. Pray before the tomb of St. Dominic!
Wait! There's more! As an an added bonus, we have requested to participate in Pope Francis' General Audience*! * (Pending on the Holy Father's schedule).
