Let us show you how to break tradition . . .
To experience the Holy Land as a place you will make a part of your life and return to time and again.
Refresh Your Soul
Words are inadequate to express the effect a visit to the Holy Land has on even the most jaded and world weary among us. It provides a new sense of perspective with which to return to your your daily life.
Refresh your mind
Our history, our culture, our values owe as much, if not more, to the Holy Land as to Greece, Rome or any other place. Visit the Holy Land to (re)learn about where you came from, where you are going and who you are.
refresh your body
And you will be the poorer for it if, while you are visiting the Holy Land, you do not take advantage of its beaches, its hiking and biking trails, its restaurants and entertainments for all ages.
Help christians in distress
Christians are in crisis and are fleeing the Holy Land. Many feel that very soon we may see the end of the Christian presence there. Leaders of all denominations agree that your visit can make a difference..
I invite you to come to the Galilee. When you come back, you will never read the Bible the same way you used to read it. You will relate to places, to people, to events. The Bible becomes something more lively than to read the Gospel from faraway, as an abstraction, ideas, ideology. There is no ideology in the Gospel. There is an invitation to follow the man from Galilee.
–Archbishop Elias Chacour
If we have no sense or appreciation of who we are and where we came from, how can we call ourselves Christians?–Father Peter Vasko
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is more than a religious tour, it is a homecoming. We were welcomed with open arms by the people. … I have come away with a better sense of my own faith and the struggles of the people in Israel and Palestine. Yet most powerful are the voices I hear calling me to return, to come home –A Student on his visit to the holy land
. . . for me, it’s simply the earth. The landscape. Those great biblical panoramas which have been home to peoples over millennia. Certainly it is a setting that bears the wounds of conflict. And it can be punishingly hot. But there, in the raw beauty of the natural landscape, a mystery speaks. It whispers that these rocks matter. Dust and rocks and grapevines and olive branches matter.
