Trudy & Rich Boynton

I have enjoyed working in the travel business for over 48 years. I have decided to dedicate my remaining work years to honoring God by organizing and promoting Catholic Pilgrimages that will enable people to experience a closer relationship with Him in the places most significant to our faith. I believe each place of pilgrimage represents a destination of the heart as well as a geographical location. I have personally visited each of the locations that Trinity Travel offers and I love sharing this faith-filled experience with others. Working closely with the instructors from the Holy Family School of Faith, I carefully select the itinerary for its potential to influence and enrich the spiritual life of the pilgrim as well as for its historical or scenic interest. I also ensure that we are working with suppliers and industry partners who will support our core objectives. I pride myself on taking an active personal interest in each pilgrimage and I escort most of the trips each year to have the messages of the gospels reinforced and amplified in my own life. My husband, Rich shares my passion for God and travel. He has been providing “back office” support to my work at Trinity Travel for some time as well as blogging and photo journaling many of our pilgrimages. Since retiring at the end of 2013 from a career in in the international engineering and construction industry Rich has become more active with the business and has been able to move his 7 – midnight job to more sensible hours.
