L.P. Pilgrimages was born within the Church of Jerusalem in 2010. Its main goal is to help the remaining Christians, The Living Stones thrive in the Holy Land.
We accomplish this goal by utilizing Christian local businesses, such as Hotels, religious houses, bus companies, guides and shops. By doing so, we provide hope and encourage the Christian community to remain in the holy land and not to immigrate.
Our services are designed to maximize the pilgrimage experience not to commercialize it. We will not compromise any detail related to quality of service.
Our offices operate in the HOLYLAND, ITALY, SPAIN, FRANCE and USA. Our products and programs are developed & customized in direct collaboration with our partners to the smallest details in order to exceed their expectations.
Our team is a mosaic of an International personnel, Israelis, Palestinian, American, Italian, Russian and German, and is destined to make a difference.
We are empowered by the words of His Beatitude Patriarch Emeritus Michel Sabbah.
"The Christians are few in number in this Holy Land and in the Church of Jerusalem. That is not only the result of historical or social circumstances. This reality is linked directlyto the mystery of Jesus in this land. 2000 years ago, Jesus came here and with his apostles, his disciples and the small number of faithful who believed in him, he also remained few in number. Today, 2000 years later, Jesus remains in the same situation of“not being recognized” in his land; and Jerusalem, the city of redemption and the source of peace for the world, remains a city that has not yet welcomed redemption and that has not yet found its peace. And in this situation, the Christians are a small number of witnesses to Jesus in his land."
