Welcome To DeaconTravel  

        At DeaconTravel, we are committed to serving God and the needs of you and your family. As a faith based ministry, we connect seekers with opportunities which will help them grow

in their relationship with God.

Wherever you may be on your spiritual path,

at DeaconTravel  you will find a supportive

team with a wealth of opportunities for personal growth.   
We aspire to strengthen each person's personal relationship with  Jesus Christ - at every point in their life, and encourage

personal and spiritual growth through prayer, Bible study and

active participation in our various ministries. In our ministries

you may journey with us for a few hours, a few days or even a

week or more. As we lead you through different exercises, you

will experience God's presence in a special way.  Whether we join

you on a journey during a single evening's presentation - a 

weekend experience- or on an actual journey in which we

travel to special places - both local and distant - such as the

Holy Land, Greece, Italy, Spain, Ireland, Poland or more - we

intend to bring God's presence closer to you than ever before. 

        On the following pages you will find more information on our ministry team, programs offered and photos from parish

presentations and actual spiritual travel experiences.


  DeaconTravel is a ministry of Deacon Dale Metcalfe a Roman Catholic Deacon of the Diocese of Joliet-in Illinois and Chaplain Arlene Metcalfe.  Our desire to share the Good News and our love of Jesus and our experience with many forms of journey - empowers us to expand upon our diaconal ordination and chaplain training to travel with you on this awesome journey!   

We are NOT a travel agency - our ministry involves prayer experiences, evenings of reflection, weekend retreats and - on occasion - we act as hosts for pilgrimage specialists who arrange travel experiences to foreign places.  We offer our services to

all Christians and those seeking to join the Christian community

of believers.  As an evangelization ministry we reach out to both churched and unchurched people - Christian or not.  We

welcome all!  Our ministry is based on the belief that our

seekers' needs are of the utmost importance. Our entire team

is committed to meeting those needs. As a result, a high

percentage of our participants are from previous journeys 

and referrals.

          Based in Illinois, we have led spiritual travel both

nationally  and internationally.  We would welcome the

opportunity to earn your trust and deliver you the best  experience possible as a participant.  In addition to hosting

you on one of our travel experiences, we are available for presentations at your church as a single evening or in a

mission format.  Please contact us for additional details,

fees and availability.  If you or your group are interested in

actual travel experiences we can help you with the

arrangements and if requested - travel with you to your destination.     E-mail us for more information
