We love taking people to Italy
St. Gemma's Catholic Pilgrimages is a small business we started in 2013.  We wanted to create an experience so parishes and Catholic high schools could get a truly Catholic pilgrimage, not just a guided tour.  We have guided groups of pilgrims throughout Rome, Assisi and Siena more dozens of times.  

We have strong devotion to our holy Dominican saints.  This is why we have teamed up with Father Paul to offer this special and unique pilgrimage.

The registration deadline is September 30, 2023.  A $500 deposit is due upon registration.  The balance is due on January 5, 2024.

Please email me at romepilgirmage@gmail.com with any questions you have.  You can register by clicking the blue link above.   You will also find the information contained in the links below helpful.

We will have a meeting in February for all registered pilgrims to answer questions and help prepare you for the pilgrimage.

I hope you're able to join us in Italy!

God bless,
Mike & Sue Denz
