Holy Land & Passion Play Pilgrimage

August 22-September 4, 2022*

A pilgrimage is a journey of faith; an ancient practice in the Church. It is an eternal investment which has an everlasting reward.

Come and see, touch and experience the sites of the Bible, the sites of our Lord’s life and our Lady’s life. You will have the privilege to prayerfully retrace the footprints of Jesus, and meet the local people, the living stones, the Custodians of the Holy Land – the Franciscans & other religious communities. You will be introduced to the various cultures of the Holy Land and the history of our Church.

Plus, visit beautiful Bavaria to witness the world-famous Passion Play of Oberammergau, Germany. In 1633, the Oberammergau villagers promised to portray Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection every tenth year, in so far as no one was to die of the plague. The villagers’ prayers were answered, and the promise has been kept until today. The 2020 Passion Play was postponed due to the pandemic.

We believe in your maximum experience!
