Proximo Travel’s Tours Lead by Clergy in Lourdes, France

Proximo Travel, a Catholic Tour Company in Worcester, Massachusetts, advertises its clergy-led tours in more than 40 Catholic dioceses. Catholic priests from churches all over the United States serve as guides on tours to Lourdes and other religious points of interest. Tour cost is per person, including airfare, hotels, tips, guided tours and meals.

A trip to Lourdes is included on a 12-day tour that also features pilgrimages to Medjugorje (a village in Bosnia-Herzegovina) and Fatima, Portugal (the site of a Marian apparition).
