Walk where He walked, pray where He prayed!
Come and Experience the person of Jesus Christ in the Holy Land!

Like a destination wedding, come to a destination retreat!  You are invited to a unique and powerful encounter with Jesus Christ, in the same vein as the potent Spiritual Exercises preached here at Our Lady of Bethesda, but in the Holy Land while we retrace Jesus’ footsteps, praying where he prayed and seeing what he saw!

Unique Christ-centered itinerary, begins with the infancy of Jesus: (Eim Karim, Bethlehem), his Baptism and Temptations: (Jericho and Mount of Temptations), his hidden life: (Nazareth), his Galilean Ministry (Cana, Magdala, Tabgha, Primacy, Mount of Beatitudes, Capernaum, Mt. Tabor); his entry into Jerusalem, his Passion, Death and Resurrection: (Bethany, Mt. of Olives, Mt. Zion, Holy Sepulcher, Temple steps, Temple Mount, Western Wall and other underground 1st century places in Jerusalem).

Mass, Rosary, Guided Meditations, time for private silent prayer at each of the pilgrimage sites, time and traffic permitting. We have planned our days to begin early and end early in the evening to allow ample time for prayer and rest.  This is a physically demanding pilgrimage.
