Pilgrimage Overview

Journey to Egypt, a special part of the Holy Land, where Abraham, Joseph, Moses and the Holy Family walked! Egypt is also the land of the Pharaohs, Jacob, Joseph, and Israel during the famine. See the Nile River, King Tutankhamen’s treasures, Kom Ombo Temple, the Temple of Luxor, the Valley of Kings and more! Explore Jordan and its ancient history. Make your way through the Holy Land to experience Him, follow in His footsteps, and see Him in the works He performed – your footsteps will become His. Celebrate votive Masses in the very places where these miraculous gifts became pages in the Gospel. See where He was back then and feel how He is still there today!


*9 Days are spent in The Holy Land & 5 days are spent in Egypt (excluding travel time)

Upon arrival into Tel Aviv, you will be greeted by our Holy Land Travel Center representative and tour guide who will be accompanying you during the pilgrimage. We will immediately transfer to our hotel in Bethlehem

Ein Karem / Bethlehem

On our first day in the Holy Land we present an overview for a better understanding of its geography and some of the sites surrounding the area and what makes it such a unique area to the three major religions – Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. We then head to the village of Ein Karem, the birthplace of St John the Baptist and to The Church Of Visitation where the Blessed Virgin Mary visited her cousin, Elizabeth, and proclaimed the ‘Magnificat’. In the afternoon we drive to Shepherd’s Fields where the angels announced the birth of Jesus. Then we visit the Church Of The Nativity in Bethlehem that stand upon the site where Jesus was born


After breakfast, we head to Caesarea by the Sea to visit the Roman Crusader remains before we continue to Haifa. Upon arrival in Haifa, we will visit Stella Maris, a Carmelite Monastery with the Madonna of Mt Carmel. Next, we stop at the Baha’i Gardens, which includes a staircase of nineteen terraces extending all the way up the northern slope of Mount Carmel. We then continue to our hotel in Nazareth


Some of today’s highlights are a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum to see the synagogue and St Peter’s house, a visit to the Mount of the Beatitudes where the Sermon on the Mount was given, to Tabgha to see the splendid mosaic about the miracle of the loaves and fishes, and to the nearby Church of Peter’s Primacy where Peter was told ” Feed my lambs, feed my sheep.” There will be an unforgettable Mass near the shores of the Sea of Galilee at the Primacy or Mt Beatitudes. Next, we head the Magdala Center, the village of Mary Magdalene, where we visit the newly built church on site and the newly excavated ruins. In the afternoon we visit Caesarea Philippi, the location of the testimony of St. Peter and where Jesus answered him “You are the Rock and upon this rock I will build my Church.”


After breakfast, we drive to Cana, where couples will have the opportunity to renew wedding vows. We continue to the Basilica of Annunciation where we will celebrate Mass. Next, we enjoy a visit to Joseph’s carpentry shop. This afternoon, we head to Mount Tabor, the site of the Transfiguration. Continue to Bethlehem


We begin our day with a visit to Bethany where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead. The desert east of Jerusalem is rich in Christian tradition. At the oasis town of Jericho, visit the excavations of the oldest city in the world and view Mt. Temptation where Jesus fasted and was tempted by Satan. On the way back there is time for a swim (or rather a float!) in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea, renowned for its healing properties. In the afternoon, there will be time for you to revisit some of your favorite sites and time for last minute buying of gifts for your loved ones


We begin our day with a visit to the Mount of Olives where Jesus prayed, continue to the Chapel of Ascension where Jesus ascended into heaven. Next, we visit the church of Pater Noster where Jesus taught the disciples the Lord’s Prayer. Next, we walk the Palm Sunday road, stopping at Dominus Flevit, where Jesus wept over Jerusalem. Then to Gethsemane, the Rock of Agony where Jesus prayed His last prayer before his arrest. Next, we head to Mount Zion, visiting the cave of Assumption (Dormition Abbey) of Mary to heaven. We visit the room of the Last Supper, King David’s Tomb, and the Church of St. Peter Gallicantu, where Peter denied Jesus three times. We end our day visiting the Palace of Caiaphas, home of the corrupt Jewish high priest. We enjoy dinner and overnight at our hotel


After breakfast we head to Jerusalem and start our visit with St Anne Church (the traditional birthplace of the Virgin Mary). Continue to view the Sisters of Zion, Ecco Homo where Pilate proclaimed “Behold the man.” Next, we retrace the last steps of Jesus as we walk along the Via Dolorosa (Way of Sorrow), through the markets of the Old City praying the Stations of the Cross at each station shrine, we reflect on the greatness of His sacrifice. Finally, we arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre for Mass. We visit the Notre Dame Center in Vatican property, where we visit the Museum of the Shroud of the Man (three-dimension replica of the Shroud of Jesus). Time and schedule permitting, we will have special time for Adoration in the Garden of Gethsemane. Dinner and overnight at our hotel
