Index of Places

Note:  This is a site index of internal links.  The idea is that if you are planning to travel somewhere you can check this list to see if any interesting pilgrimage sites are there.  If there is no link by something it is probably a place I would like to go and haven't yet.  If you go first, please send pictures and any travel advice to wcwcatholic@gmail.com.  You can also let me know if you think I have left anything off this list.

Pictures are from St. Joseph's Oratory of Mount-Royal, the world's largest santuary dedicated to St. Joseph.  Founded by the newly-beatified St. Andre Bessette, it is also his burial site.
 
(Thanks to Kathy B. for submitting the above pictures from her recent trip to St. Joseph's Oratory.  That isn't a bamboo wall on the right, it is a collection of canes and crutches left by those healed at the oratory.  The oil from the candles in the picture on the left is collected by visitors for the purpose of blessing themselves and saying prayers to St. Joseph.)

Looking for more travel/pilgrimage ideas?  My favorite regional travel book is:
 
Sacred Sites of Wisconsin by John-Brian Paprock and Teresa Peneguy Paprock - This is an amazing book!  Who knew there were so many interesting churches, grottos, and things to see in this one little state!?  It also includes Native American, Protestant . . . all kinds of places that are holy to all kinds of people.  But a LOT of them are Catholic.
