Rev. John Tourangeau, O. Praem., a Norbertine priest who had an afterlife experience following a major heart attack, emphatically states, “Heaven is for real!” Co-author of To Heaven & Back, Fr. John co-founded Peregrino Press in 2015.

Travis Vanden Heuvel is a husband and a father, a son, and a brother. An active member of his parish and First Degree Knight of Columbus, Travis is passionate about his Catholic faith and sharing the message of Christ’s love with others. In 2015, Travis co-founded Peregrino Press with friend and co-author, Fr. John Tourangeau.

Peregrino Press (that is, “Pilgrim” Press translated from Spanish to English), is a media publishing company in De Pere, WI. Born out of a desire to share our stories and our faith more intimately, Peregrino Press publishes engaging and inspired content that enhances and promotes our Catholic identity.  

As children of God – and as brothers and sisters in Christ – we all journey together. The image of being on a pilgrimage finds meaning in walking with others on life’s journey, for no one of us is meant to “go-it-alone.” Simply, in Christ, we are pilgrims and friends on a profound journey of faith. And it is in the sharing of the stories of our lives that we come to new life, hope, and peace.
