Frequently Asked Questions
About This Pilgrimage

How much does this pilgrimage cost?
The cost per person is $945 for double occupancy overnight accommodations.  If you are interested in joining the pilgrimage as a family, with children 15 years and younger, please contact Thomas Dotterweich directly to discuss special pricing.

With whom will I share a room?
If you are traveling alone, and do not make a specific roommate request, you will be assigned a roommate of the same gender for the entirety of the pilgrimage.

What are the overnight accommodations like?
To ensure quality, every night the pilgrimage will stop at a hotel previously visited by a member of the staff of the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings.  Rooms will have two full/queen beds.

What does my registration fee include? 
Your registration fee covers the cost of bus transportation from Montana to Wisconsin, and destinations between, as well as two meals a day and overnight accommodations.  One of the meals included will be breakfast every day at the hotel.  Any entrance fees or expected donations at the holy sites are also covered.

What is not included in my registration fee? 
You are expected to cover the cost of one meal a day, plus any alcoholic drinks for the entirety of the pilgrimage including at meals, and any other incidentals and snacks.  You should also budget funds for personal expenses and souvenirs.

Will we be celebrating Mass and doing other “religious stuff” every day? 
Yes, this is a Catholic pilgrimage and so we will be praying and celebrating Mass every day of the trip, with the exception of the first day.

How structured will this pilgrimage be? 
While most days will be pretty full and structured, there are also periods of down time built into the schedule.  For example, there are a few evenings when nothing is scheduled so that you can spend time with other pilgrims and explore the surrounding area.

Who do I contact for more information?
