The Most Reverend Robert Coerver, Bishop of the Diocese of Lubbock and Reverend Don Zeiler, pastor of St. Gabriel the Archangel parish in McKinney, invite you to join them for an inspiring pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

The Holy Land is often referred to as the 5th Gospel, a place where the people, places and events of the Bible come to life.  We will be traveling during a beautiful time of the year in the Holy Land when crowds are thinner and access to sites much nicer.  Our program balances archaeological visits, religious visits and opportunities to learn more about the rich cultural life of local people – enjoying their hospitality, food and art.    We will celebrate Mass each day at sites where Jesus and his early disciples gathered and/or where pilgrims have gathered over the centuries.  Our program also includes a visit to the spectacular site of Petra, in Jordan.  This is an enchanting place where monuments are carved into the orange rock and sandstone.  En route, we will visit Mt. Nebo where Moses looked out over the Promised Land.  Come join us for a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to walk in the footsteps of visionary men and women of faith and connect with your own faith heritage. 

Human history is rich with tales of globe trekkers who have gained valuable insight about themselves and the world around them through the discovery and exploration of cultures outside their own. People who travel the globe begin a lifelong journey of worldly citizenship.

The experience of traveling together to places of great historical, religious and cultural significance is deeply transformative. Explore some of the experiences of our travelers through their words.
