The Real Life Catholic Holy Land Pilgrimage
Going to the Holy Land changed the way I pray.
Changed the way I share the faith. Changed my life.
You can't not be changed when you touch the rock Jesus was crucified on,
enter the empty tomb, walk along the Sea of Galilee,
and bow to enter the Bethlehem basilica through the small "door of humility".
Come with me on an epic journey in the footsteps of Jesus, June 2020!

Palm Sunday and the Agony in the Garden. Today you'll walk from the Mount of Olives, down the Palm Sunday Road and through the Garden of Gethsemane. Visit the Upper Room on Mt. Zion, the Church of the Dormition (where Mary "fell asleep"), and celebrate Mass at the Church of St. Peter Gallicantu.
Early Years in Jerusalem & the Wilderness. Travel down the Jordan Valley to Qumran where the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. Float in the Dead Sea. Go on an excursion through the desert where Jesus fasted for 40 days. We'll then celebrate Mass in Bethany, where Jesus raised Lazarus from the dead.
The Way of the Cross, The Crucifixion, The Resurrection. Follow the Via Dolorosa (“Way of Grief”). Celebrate Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, which marks the site of the Crucifixion, and Jesus’ tomb. We'll then explore the Old City of Jerusalem.
