Pilgrimage Guides

Jerry Usher and Debbie Georgianni, veterans of EWTN Catholic radio, currently host the hit daily program Take 2 with Jerry and Debbie. Together, they are excited to join you on a pilgrimage as they visit historic Catholic locations in San Antonio, Texas.

Pilgrimage Itinerary


You’re invited, along with your family, friends, and guests to experience an incredible pilgrimage as we visit historic Catholic locations in San Antonio, Texas. You’re welcome to join in for just a part of the pilgrimage, or all of it.

Continue to check out this website for updates as they become available. Additional information will also be given at the Meet & Greets on Friday and Saturday evenings.

Expect fun, fellowship, and surprises for all who attend!

This is an informal pilgrimage, which means, among other things, that there is no cost to you to join aside from your own travel, lodging, meal, and downtown parking expenses. All venues on this pilgrimage are free of charge, with the exception of a possible, optional, Riverboat cruise ride down the beautiful San Antonio River.

The host hotel for this event is the *Courtyard San Antonio Airport/North Star Mall *, located at 80 NE Loop 410, San Antonio, Texas 78216.

We have a block of rooms reserved for you under the name One Faith, our 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please contact the hotel directly at 210-530-9881 to make your hotel reservations. Be sure to mention the name One Faith when making your reservation in order to take advantage of  the group room rate at $99.00 + taxes, per night. It’s first come, first serve, so get your reservations booked now!
