About this trip

Dear Pilgrims, It has been said that a pilgrimage is a personal invitation from God. When Andrew and John encountered Jesus and said, “Rabbi, where are you staying?” Jesus answered, “Come and you will see.” You are invited to come and see with us the wonders of the Holy Land, to walk where Jesus walked, to see what He saw, and to allow His words to penetrate the deepest recesses of your heart. Our journey will be both a pilgrimage and a mission as we support not just the holy places, but holy faces as well – Christian tour guides, bus drivers and lodging facilities. Be it our first or fiftieth pilgrimage, what may have started out as a curiosity about the Holy Land, can now develop into a heartfelt passion to know Sacred Scripture in its context as we allow all that touched Jesus to touch us. Come as eager pilgrims to encounter Jesus in the Holy Land, know Him more fully, experience life in abundance, and share in many blessings and graces. Jesus is waiting! Fr. Henri & Dcn. Hal
