About this trip
Brothers & Sisters in Christ,
Consider going on this ancient pilgrimage to the land where Jesus walked,
preached, and performed many wonders. A Holy Land pilgrimage is an opportunity
to see and touch what the gospel stories describe and to put into context many of the parables and analogies we hear about in the scriptures. It helps to
bring into reality salvation history culminating with Christ’s teachings, death,
and resurrection. A pilgrimage to Jerusalem is an investment of time and money, but worth it its weight in our Christian journey.
