Group & Diocesan Pilgrimages


Group and Diocesan Pilgrimages are an important part of the Catholic tradition, an opportunity for parishioners, students and other pilgrims to share special journeys of faith together.

At Joe Walsh Tours we work with parishes, dioceses and other organisations across the UK, Ireland, USA, Canada and beyond to organise meaningful spiritual journeys to the most sacred sites and holy shrines in Europe and the world.

Lourdes and Fatima are two of the best loved destinations for groups and Diocesan Pilgrimages, with groups travelling every year.

We look after all the travel logistics, including flights, transport, accommodation and activities such as mass, ceremonies and sightseeing at the destinations, so your group can enjoy a wonderful experience, in comfort.

If you would like to join upcoming Diocesan pilgrimages, you will find details from your own Dioceses and we will be sharing travel dates and details below soon, including information on how to join these pilgrimage trips.

If you are looking to organise a Diocesan pilgrimage or a pilgrim tour for your group, contact the Joe Walsh Tours Pilgrimages travel team and we will be delighted to help you plan a trip adapted to your group’s needs and requirements.
