Join us for a journey of a lifetime on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Then visit Oberammergau, Germany, for the Passion Play, which only happens once a decade.

Passion Play
In Oberammergau, Germany, in 1633, after months of suffering and dying from the plague, the people pledged to act out the passion of our Lord, Jesus Christ every 10 years if the lives of the villagers would be spared.


The Pilgrim Experience

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

• At Mt. Tabor and the Church of Transfiguration, pilgrims feel the presence of God at the site of the Transfiguration, the last time Jesus was in the area of Galilee.

• 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” at the Dead Sea.
