Welcome to Inheritance Pilgrimages

Grow in Holiness on a Life-Changing Pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

About Inheritance

For many young people, the Holy Land may be out of reach—we are changing that. Inheritance Pilgrimages are cut from the same cloth as Steve Ray’s Footprints of God Pilgrimages, but with budget friendly meals and accommodations aimed at more youthful travelers. We are forging a path to the Holy Land for young, catholic adults.


Our Mission

To bring young Catholics, students, and those discerning priesthood and religious life to the Holy Land by subsidizing life-changing pilgrimages.

Meet Our Team

Steve & Janet Ray

Steve and Janet have been to the Holy Land over 200 times exploring, filming, and leading thousands of pilgrims. Steve is a regular guest on Catholic radio and TV including Catholic Answers, Ave Maria Radio, Relevant Radio, and EWTN. While Steve’s role as advisor will not place him on each of the Inheritance Pilgrimages, he will ensure that only best local Catholic guides will lead our pilgrims.

Jesse & Anna Ray

Jesse’s first pilgrimage to the Holy Land was at the age of 15 just after converting to the Catholic faith. Since then he has traveled there four more times including once with Anna shortly after they were married. Three of their 8 children have also been blessed to go to the Holy Land.

Cindy (Ray) Brown

Cindy, a Ph.D in Philosophy, had her first Holy Land experience as an 18 year old and returned for 3 additional pilgrimages including bringing her three oldest children.
