Father Walter Lewis invites you to join him on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Many say that the Holy Land is the 5th Gospel – a place where the people, places and events of the scriptures come to life.  

Much of the landscape is as it was during the time of Jesus’ life – making it easy to visualize and imagine the context within which Jesus forged a new vision of religious life.  Monsignor Kevin Irwin, Professor at Catholic University, will accompany us as scholar-on-tour. Author of seventeen books and popular presenter, he will help us understand the significance of what we are seeing and set a special tone for our liturgical celebrations, underscoring the roots of the Eucharist in the places we visit.  We will travel to sites that were central to the events of his life and ministry – such as Nazareth, Bethlehem, Capernaum, and Jerusalem – as well as other sites that allow us to better appreciate the Roman and Jewish world of the 1st century.  We will be traveling during a time of the year when crowds are thinner, allowing us to have more time and space at historical and religious sites.  Imagine celebrating Eucharist at the Holy Sepulchre, the Grotto of the Annunciation or the site of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem.  We’ve created more leisure time toward the end of our program so you can enjoy the shops and sites of the Old City of Jerusalem.  Come join us for a once-in-a-lifetime journey!

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.
