S4 Ep20: How-to Pilgrimage: Part 2

by Lisa Cotter, posted in Excellence


Pilgrimages are a pretty cool idea, but most people need a few more details. Where should you go? How should you get there? What do you need to know to turn these holy opportunities into a reality?

On today’s episode, hosts Kevin and Lisa Cotter tackle part two of a two-part series on pilgrimages. They’ll share with you pilgrimage sites from around the world and your own backyard. Plus, they’ll give you practical how-to tips to make your trip a success and share a Catholic hack to help you focus while praying.

  • Rome/Vatican
  • Camino de Santiago
