About this trip

The COVID-19 pandemic has drastically changed the ways that we work, socialize and even worship. This last year has left many feeling isolated and alone, cut off from the familiarity of family, friendships and church. We might be asking ourselves, “Where do we go from here?” And Jesus might answer us, even as he did his first disciples, “Come and see.” We are being invited out of our fearful time of quarantine to walk in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, to experience the sights that the Divine eyes of Christ daily beheld. Our journey will be both a pilgrimage and a mission as we support not just the holy places, but the holy faces as well—Christian tour guides, bus drivers and lodging facilities. 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. The Lord is inviting you as well, “Come and see.”
Fr. Joseph Mary O.F.M.Cap. & Deacon Hal Goldwire
