Religious Travel and Pilgrimages

Through the years, Renaissance Group has had the privilege of working with numerous cardinals, archbishops, bishops and pastors throughout the United States in arranging their travel to Europe. For example, Renaissance Group coordinated in 1994 the pilgrimage to Rome for the Archdiocese of Baltimore on the occasion of the elevation of William Cardinal Keeler to the College of Cardinals, and has assisted in other pilgrimages for that diocese. Since 1995 and upon the Canonization of Eugene de Mazenod, travel arrangements were made for the 400+ members of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Numerous other diocesan pilgrimages were planned to Rome for various clergy and laity. Renaissance Group coordinated travel arrangements cardinals and bishops attending a Board of Trustees Meeting of the Catholic University of America to be held in Rome. In 2002, Renaissance Group was the official agency in the USA coordinating travel arrangements for the Canonization of St. JoseMaria Escriva in Rome, and assisted more than 1500 pilgrims who attended this religious event.

In October 2003, Renaissance Group was taking care of the Archdiocesan Pilgrimage to Rome for the Beatification of Mother Teresa and the 25th anniversary of Pope John Paul II under the Spiritual Leadership of His Eminence Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Renaissance Group also provided travel arrangements to the large group of people who accompanied His Eminence to Rome for his elevation as a Cardinal.

Having worked closely with the Vatican throughout the years on travel arrangements for church officials and laity, individually and in groups, Renaissance Group has the required experience, professional contacts, linguistic abilities and international prestige to undertake any small or large scale pilgrimage to the holy sites of the world. This experience is not confined to Italy but throughout all of Europe. Another specialty of the agency is student travel from various colleges as well as international conferences and congresses.
