About this trip

Dear Friends, In a profoundly religious spirit, understanding they will be walking along the way of the Lord”. Pilgrimages offer a special opportunity for Christian renewal and for carrying out the Church’s mission of solidarity and reconciliation. Pilgrimage is a unique religious undertaking…Hearts and minds transformed forever, pilgrims have returned home with a new sense of their Christian calling to take up a new way of life. Potential pilgrims should not be discouraged by reports of the ongoing political instability in the region. They should draw strength from the generations of Christians who have made the pilgrimage to the Holy Land before them.” With that vision in mind, I invite you to join us on next June 2021 for Pilgrimage. Please prayerfully consider this unique opportunity to grow in your faith by visiting the birthplace of our faith.
