Biblical Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
9 Days | February 17 to 25, 2017
Jerusalem…Bethlehem…Sea of Galilee, Nazareth…Tiberias…Caesarea-by-the-Sea…Jericho…Masada
Dear Old St. Pat’s,
We would like to invite you to join us on this special pilgrimage that will enrich your faith and make scripture come alive.
We will travel to Israel, the cradle of our faith, and walk the roads Jesus walked. This holy land gave birth to three major religions, and we will visit ancient sites that are sacred to Christians, Jews, and Muslims and gain an understanding of the ways these three faiths have impacted one another.
We will see where Jesus was born, lived, and talked. We will walk the “Palm Sunday Road” and the “Via Dolorosa,” the way of sorrows, that Jesus walked on his way to Golgotha. We will hear the sounds of the waves on the Sea of Galilee, and experience the aromas, the excitments and the bustle of the Old City of Jerusalem with its market squares and shops. We will feel the water of the River Jordan as we renew our baptisms.
Come, travel with us to a land filled with history, a land so small and yet so great, a land loved by our Savior. Come and experience the Bible anew as we sing, pray, travel and worship together. Come on a journey you will never forget. Space will be limited, so please send in your reservation as soon as possible…space is limited.
-Fr. Tom Hurley
