We hope that some of our young people will be joining this pilgrimage and helping to care for the sick and elderly.

Holy Land Trip

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

A group of 29 pilgrims have just returned from an unforgettable experience of the Holy Land. The pilgrims found it: “Excellent;” “A wonderful experience;” “Felt privileged;” “Will remember this for the rest of my life;” “Unbelievable;” “Memorable;” “Thought provoking;” “Fantastic;” “Beautiful lturgies and masses;” “Always felt included and part of what was happening.” We also experienced the hospitality of the people of Bethlehem and shared their plight.

In Nazareth we prayed for all the young people of St. Mary’s at the Church of Jesus the Adolescent in Nazareth. We left the school mission statement and a candle there.
