Focused on the Logistical and the Spiritual

Before founding Verso Ministries, John Paul Lichon worked in college campus ministry with planning pilgrimages as a small part of his job. Not finding any pilgrimage companies that understood the full vision of Catholic pilgrimage and delivering on every aspect, he started a ministry that would.

On a Verso Ministries pilgrimage, we take care of all the logistical AND spiritual preparations so you can be truly present throughout your journey. Each step of the way is guided — curated to maximize sacred encounters with everything and everyone around you.
