Franciscan Spirit Tours offers pilgrimages to some of the most beautiful and spiritually significant sites in the world. Our pilgrimages are inspired by the spirit of Sts. Francis and Clare of Assisi, who had great love for God, the world's beauty, and the companionship of others.
Our pilgrimages offer a balance of structured, group tours activities and free time, allowing each pilgrim the opportunity to make the most of the holy and historic places we visit. Franciscan Spirit Tours handles all travel arrangements, logistics and details of the trip so that our pilgrims are free to focus on the deeper purpose of the experience: their journey closer to God, to themselves, and to others.
All Franciscan Spirit Tours pilgrimages include round-trip airfare (usually from New York City), comfortable accommodations in superior tourist hotels (or, on occasion, in friaries, convents or monasteries), breakfast and dinner, ground transportation in air-conditioned coaches or cars, guided tours of shrines and historic sites, entrance fees to all sites and events scheduled on the tours, and a dedicated Tour Coordinator* and Spiritual Director who will travel with the group at all times.
Our Spiritual Directors are Franciscan priests who will celebrate Mass every day and make themselves available to our pilgrims on an individual basis anytime throughout the journey for spiritual direction, and sacramental reconciliation.
We hope you will accept God's invitation to journey toward a refreshed spirit and a renewed soul and that we, at Franciscan Spirit Tours, can help you on that path.
*For smaller groups, the Spiritual Director often serves a dual role as Tour Coordinator as well.
