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 us on this amazing pilgrimage following the footsteps of the Apostle St. James the Greater, evangelizer of Spain, brother of St. John the Evangelist, son of Zebedee. One of the most spectacular journeys you'll ever experience! Our pilgrimage will travel the famous Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James) across Spain, the second oldest pilgrimage route in Christendom. The last 100 kilometers (66 miles approximately) of the itinerary will be on foot (optional) in order to obtain the coveted pilgrimage certificate of The Camino, given by the Diocese of Santiago de Compostela. Visit the following locations: Madrid, El Pilar in Zaragoza, Logroño, Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Rioja Wine Region, Burgos, Ponferrada, Sarria, Potomarin, Palas del Rey, Arzua, O Pedrouzo, Santiago de Compostela, all in Spain. We are including a visit to famous Marian Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima this year, to celebrate 100 years of the Apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Fatima to the 3 “Pastorcitos” (little Shepherds) in Fatima, Portugal. Enjoy the natural beauty of the Camino! Join us! This pilgrimage will provide many opportunities for deep prayer and conversation with God along the Way.
