The Diocese of Altoona-Johnstown is pleased to announce a Pilgrimage to Philadelphia for the Papal Visit September 25-28, 2015. Join Bishop Mark Bartchak and other faithful from around the Diocese as we welcome Pope Francis to Pennsylvania. The Diocese is proud to offer two package options. The first package is open to adult individuals and families. The second package is open to young adults ages 18-25 and does not include children. Both packages include round trip bus transportation, lodging, some meals, Mass with Bishop Mark, a Diocesan hospitality facility, and other amenities. Reservations for both packages is limited and on a first come, first served basis. Reservations and an initial non-refundable deposit are due by February 20. Prices listed reflect the cost of the pilgrimage based on full buses. If we have fewer pilgrims, there may be a small upcharge. The Diocese reserves the right to change the itinerary.
