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.

This year we will be utilizing two hotels while in DC:

The Crystal Gateway Marriott
1700 Richmond Highway
Arlington, VA, 22202


Crystal City Marriott at Reagan National Airport
1999 Richmond Highway
Arlington VA, 22202

You are allowed to bring up to one adult per every three 8th graders, but must have at least one adult for every six 8th graders.

You are allowed to bring up to one adult for every four teens, but must have at least one adult for every eight teens.

The programming for the high school and 8th grade tracks will be held in the ballrooms of the Crystal Gateway hotel.

This year groups may use the buses for one drop on Saturday, Jan. 22nd after your group has loaded their luggage onto the bus at the hotel.

This can vary from group to group! Keep in mind that participants will need to purchase food, metro tickets and have money for any additional touring stops your group may make. Here is a link to the metro website for pricing:  http://www.wmata.com/
