  • Destination: Holy Land
  • Duration: 10 days

Date: November 18 – 27, 2023
Spiritual Directors: Fr. Mitchell Guidry and Fr. Clinton Sensat

Join us for a journey of a lifetime on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The Scriptures will come alive as you visit Our Lord’s homeland. It is an encounter that has changed the lives of many pilgrims, and it is an act of faith and prayer.

The Pilgrim Experience

• At the Mount of Beatitudes, site of the Sermon on the Mount, pilgrims celebrate Mass in the garden overlooking the Sea of Galilee. Pilgrims renew their Baptismal promises at the Jordan River.

• At. Mount Tabor, pilgrims feel the presence of God at the Church of the Transfiguration.

• At the Church of the Visitation, where Mary and Elizabeth met while both pregnant, pilgrims hear the Magnificat in multiple languages.

• Pilgrims take a “floating experience” on the Dead Sea.
