Holy Land

June 12 - 22, 2022

*Please note that due to COVID travel restrictions, we unfortunately had to cancel the January 2021 trip. Please reach out if you have any questions regarding that trip.

Going to the Holy Land will change the way you pray. Change the way you share your faith. Change your life.

It’s nearly impossible not to be changed when you touch the rock on which Jesus was crucified, enter the empty tomb, walk along the Sea of Galilee, and bow to enter the Bethlehem basilica through the small “door of humility.” You’ll walk where Jesus walked – in the land called the Fifth Gospel – and open the other four to your mind in a whole new way.

Join us on this epic journey in the footsteps of Jesus.

Step back from yourself and your everyday life and experience God where he has revealed himself in an especially profound way.

What Makes a Pilgrimage Different?

A Life-Changing Experience

Grow Spiritually

A pilgrimage is an essentially spiritual experience. It is a travelogue of the human heart. A mapping of our way home. It is the perfect way to rediscover how to live your daily life. Sometimes, you need to step away from the distractions of your everyday life. A pilgrimage provides a perfect opportunity to hear the voice of God and connect to Jesus in a whole new way.

Visit Sacred Places

Imagine seeing the place where Jesus was born. Visiting Cana where Jesus performed his first miracle. Standing in the Upper Room. Praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. Walking the Way of the Cross. And seeing Jesus’ empty tomb. We will take you there.

Create Lasting Friendships

Whether you are making this pilgrimage with your spouse, best friend, or by yourself, you will meet an incredible group of people who are passionate about their faith and the Real Life Catholic mission. Make memories and create lifelong friendships with people from across the country. Find together the joy that only comes through Jesus.

“The Holy Land was an experience of a lifetime! It made my faith become so much more alive. It allowed me to be able to visualize all the readings in scripture and the Mysteries of the Rosary. My prayer life is NOT the same. While all the places we visited touched my life in a different way, my favorite spot we visited was the Church of the Annunciation. As soon as we walked through the gates, you could feel Mary's presence.”
–KATIE G.
“The Holy Land Pilgrimage with RLC was a life-changing experience for me and my family. The Gospels and the Mysteries of the Rosary came to life. I reflect on the Holy Sites we visited at almost every Mass I attend and with every decade of the Rosary I pray.”
—TED H.
“It was incredible to not just be there on a pilgrimage at the birthplace of Christianity but actually living the life. It was a totally amazing experience—from our bus driver, Benny, who took us to places off the itinerary and drove and parked the bus like it was a sports car; to Raffi, our tour guide, who was very proud of his Jewish faith, but I felt had a PHD in Christianity; to daily Mass and homilies from Father John Parks; and, of course, the numerous reflections from Chris wherever we were at. The entire trip made my faith so much deeper.”
—BERNIE B.
“Your pilgrimage was the start of my heart opening to really let Jesus in. I was convinced it would happen at the Garden of Gethsemane—but no—it was in the cave at Shepherd's Field. I finally knew I WAS worthy and who I am matters.”
—CATHY R.
