Pilgrimage Overview

It is a joy to invite you to join us on our pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Since our youth we have been hearing the Gospel stories about Jesus walking and teaching in Jerusalem, Capernaum, and Galilee. He worked miracles around the sea of Tiberius, Jericho, and Cana. We will be seeing all those places and much more. Our pilgrimages will give us an opportunity of walking in the footsteps of Jesus, our Blessed Mother, and the first disciples.
Each day we will celebrate Mass and reflect on the Gospel text appropriate to the place we visit. This will be a pilgrimage of a lifetime and it will forever change the way you read and understand the Scriptures. We hope you will be able to join us on what promises to be a grace-filled journey to the Land from which has come our salvation.
