Tourism and Pilgrimages


The National Coordinator for Human Mobility Apostolates is planning to develop a national network of those persons involved in a Tourism Apostolate. We have begun to reach out to all those providing pastoral care at our various parks, including national, sport, state, theme, or amusement parks.  We have also reached out to those who are providing pastoral care to tourists at major resort centers, conference centers, convention centers, and recreational locations such as beaches, casinos, racetracks and hotels.  The Tourism Apostolate will also minister to those working at and attending major events that attract millions of people, such as festivals, expositions, fairs, sporting events, concerts, and conventions. All of these events provide an opportunity for appropriate pastoral care.
