FAQs

A trip is simply traveling from one place to another, but a pilgrimage is a journey of spiritual significance that is made in prayer to a location of religious importance. Most pilgrimages are done in faith to achieve healing, answer questions, or receive some spiritual benefit. One benefit we hope to gain is a world that will value the dignity of all human life from conception to natural death and to believe in our Lord, Jesus Christ.

The Crystal Gateway Marriott
