About this trip

Dear Friends,
I’m not sure how many of you have a ‘bucket list’, somethings to do or see while you are able too? My bucket list was emptied last October, 2019 when I visited some of the great shrines of France. I am inviting you to add something to your bucket list or if it’s already in your bucket, to consider making it a reality.
I am talking about a pilgrimage to the Holy Land which will be an experience you will never forget. Christians have been going on pilgrimages from the very beginning of our faith. The Holy Land holds importance as the place of Jesus’ birth, life, death, and resurrection.
Our Pilgrimage will include visits to Bethlehem where we stop at The Church of the Nativity that commemorates the birth of Christ. We visit sites like the village of Cana, the Sea of Galilee, Mt. Tabor, and the River Jordan, Jerusalem and the Dead Sea.
On our pilgrimage to the Holy Land we will be offered a complete itinerary that includes round-trip airfare,
accommodation in first-class hotels and religious housing, breakfast and dinner daily, all transportation, daily Mass
and all under excellent organizing, leadership and teaching from a L. P. Pilgrimage expert, their staff and Guide.
If you are interested and want to join us in September 2021, please contact Christina McClean.
Father Ed Lamp
