Dear Brothers and Sisters, For many centuries, Groups have traveled to the Holy Land to visit the sites where Jesus was born and lived, taught and healed. For millennia, pilgrims have yearned to encounter the places of his suffering, death, and resurrection, and also to visit the places where the first believers received the Holy Spirit, where the apostles preached and healed. Imagine yourself as a contemporary pilgrim, walking in the footsteps of Jesus: in Nazareth, his childhood home, in the other villages of Galilee, where his ministry began, and in Jerusalem, where it came to its culmi¬nation. We invite you to join us on a 10-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Together, we will visit many of the sites that we hear about in the Bible. We will have many opportunities to pray, dine, talk, explore, and laugh together. We will also celebrate Masses at a sacred sites associated with Jesus’ life. We will have plenty of time for personal prayer, biblical reflection, group sharing, tasty meals, and even some shopping. We will also meet people who live very contemporary lives in this region, including some whose families have lived in the Holy Land for thousands of years. In this brochure, you’ll find a detailed itinerary for each day of our pilgrimage. Space is limited, so please sign up soon! We hope you can join us on this pilgrimage, exploring the land of Jesus, reflecting on the Word of God, and renewing our lives of faith.
