Arma Dei Equipping Catholic Families








Meet Monica McConkey:
A wife, Mom of 5+ kids, a designer, an architecture school survivor, an author, blogger and crafter... and she thinks it’s cool to be Catholic!
Monica and her husband Bill founded a Catholic apostolate called Arma Dei: Equipping Catholic Families, creating solid Catholic, fun teaching tools and gifts to celebrate and teach the Catholic Faith.
Monica was with us on a pilgrimage in September of 2014. Read about her preparations and experiences on

By Hope - A talented young pilgrim
We don't provide guided tours, we provide guided pilgrimages...  

A tour's focus is the history of a place.  A pilgrimage focuses on the sacredness of a place.  These two sometimes intersect, but our Faith is always the focus of St. Gemma's Catholic Pilgrimages.  The purpose of a guided pilgrimage is to encounter Christ through His Catholic Church. We encounter Him at the sacred places we journey to, at the tombs of the saints we find there, in the fellow pilgrims we journey with, and in the Vicar of Christ who teaches us about Him.
How close do we get to Pope Francis on our Pilgrimages?  
Just watch the video below, taken by Sue Denz, who was standing further away than our pilgrims who were with her.
