13-Day Study Tour and Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Led by David Haas, Dr. Art Zannoni, Fr. Ray East, & Maria Sfeir

December 29, 2020 – January 10, 2021


Haas Tour groupJoin David, Art, Fr. Ray, and Maria for a very unique and once in a life-time opportunity—to take part in a musical, liturgical, and biblical pilgrimage to the Holy Land! We will pray, sing, and delve into the scriptures as we visit sites and places where pilgrims throughout the ages have gone to pursue a deepening of their spiritual life and call to discipleship. We will visit places that will help the Bible come alive in our lives and hearts, such as Caesarea, Haifa, Akko, Nazareth, Sepphoris, Megido, Bethlehem, the Sea of Galilee, Capernaum, Bethany, Mt. Carmel, Cana, the Jordan River, the Mt. of Beatitudes, Mt. Tabor, Samaria, the glorious city of Jerusalem, Ein Karem, Jericho, the Mount of Olives, Gethsemane, Masada, Qumran, the Dead Sea, the city of Emmaus, and so much more! Our days will be marked with liturgical celebrations of the Eucharist, as well as opportunities for Morning and Midday Prayer, Taizé Prayer, and Prayer of Lamentation. We will be singing, proclaiming, and delving into the scriptures with our leaders and each other. We will be staying at wonderful hotels, and there will be time for shopping among the local merchants as well as time for communal and individual prayer and meditation. We will pray for a just peace in the land of our Jewish and Christian heritage during the season of Christmas, and rejoice and give thanks to the Spirit who will guide our journey. This is NOT a concert tour, but rather a journey, a retreat, a time to sing and rejoice in a most sacred land. We hope and pray that you will join us, and say “YES” to this invitation to one of the most valuable gifts you could ever give to yourself: a visit and pilgrimage to the Holy Land!

Sincerely,

Maria Sfeir, Fr. Ray East, Dr. Art Zannoni, and David Haas
