Saint Paul

Welcome to the Footsteps of Saint Paul, a look at his journey and pilgrimage by Mary's Pilgrims.


Catholics from all over the world flock to Greece for Marian pilgrimages that focus on the birth of Christianity. They are here to see the footsteps of St. Paul, Paul the Apostle, who was one of the most influential figures in spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ in the first century.



Among the cities of Athens, Thessaloniki, Phillippi, Kavala, Kalambaka, Delphi and Corinth in Greece Paul delivered his first sermons. Paul worked tirelessly throughout Europe, then part of the ancient Roman Empire, laying the seeds of Christianity.



Mary’s Pilgrims has been planning catholic pilgrimages that feature the footsteps of St. Paul for decades. See the prison where Paul and Silas were thrown, where the first woman was converted to Christianity and baptized by Paul. Also learn about the history of Ancient Rome during the first century, see Byzantine art, the Acropolis, the ruins of the Parthenon, Erectheum and Propylae. The opportunity to relive the history of St. Paul and the birth of Christianity is one you cannot afford to miss out on.
