Your Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
ISRAEL | NEWS | NEWS
It’s your turn to walk in Jesus’ footsteps on an 8-day pilgrimage with the Legion of Christ.

Set time aside just for Christ, in the land made holy by his life and death.

November 9, 2009. A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, especially when it is a spiritual and cultural experience that brings the Gospel to life in 3-D.

This year, the Legion of Christ is offering a special 8-day pilgrimage to the most important holy sites of Christ’s birth, life, and passion. The trip begins in Galilee, with visits to Cana, Nazareth, Mt Tabor, Capernaum, Caesarea, and more.

Next, the pilgrimage will take you to Bethlehem, where the story of Christ’s birth becomes vividly real in the Shepherd’s Field and the Grotto of the Nativity, as well as the nearby village of Ein-Karem, where St John the Baptist was born and Mary spoke her Magnificat.

The next few days will be spent in Jerusalem, retracing the steps of Christ during his passion, from the Upper Room of the Last Supper to the Garden of Gethsemane, the place of the

And finally, the pilgrimage will end in the more austere desert lands of Bethany, Jericho, the Mount of Temptations, and the Dead Sea.

The total expense for the pilgrimage is $1,720 for a double-occupancy room, and $2,120 for a single-occupancy room. This price includes all accommodations and meals, transportation in deluxe buses, an English-speaking guide, all entrance fees, and tips for the guide, bus driver, and hotel staff. The flight is not included in the cost.
