Pilgrim Routes Inc. was founded in 2007 by Richard LeSueur after 25 years of experience leading programs of study and pilgrimage in the Middle East. For fourteen years Pilgrim Routes Travel Inc. ran successful programs of pilgrimage through Israel-Palestine, Jordan, the Sinai, Greece, Turkey and Ireland. Then in early 2022, Richard dissolved the business-side of his pilgrimage ministry preferring to focus attention on the “Fifth Gospel” video project. He continues to facilitate boutique programs of pilgrimage through Israel coordinated by reputable tour companies in the United States and Canada.
