Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
St. Joseph Church
Led by Fr. Patrick Osel-Poku, Associate Pastor and Spiritual Director
10-Day Pilgrimage to the Holy Land | March 5–14, 2024
On this pilgrimage to the Holy Land you will join those pilgrims who, for two thousand years, “have gone in search of the “footprints’ of God that land, rightly called “holy, pursuing them as it were in the stones, the hills, the waters which provided the setting for the earthy life of the Son of God.” (Pope John Paul II, 1999).
You will pray in Nazareth at the place where the “Word became flesh” (John 1:14) through Mary’s “yes.” You will visit the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem, walk around Manger Square, and visit Shepherd’s Field. There will be the opportunity to meditate at the Sea of Galilee. We will retrace the steps of Jesus through the holy city of Jerusalem: The Upper Room, Gethsemane, the Way of the Cross, Calvary, and the site of the Empty Tomb!
Our days will include Mass, personal prayer, and a chance to mingle with the locals. We will pray for a just peace in the land where Jesus, the Prince of Peace, was born! Please join us on this extraordinary journey of faith. It is our hope that you will say “YES” to this invitation and the most invaluable gift that you can ever give yourself: a pilgrimage to the Holy Land!
