Holy Land Pilgrimage - BHT0056

Holyland Catholic Pilgrimage
Jerusalem - Bethlehem - Nazareth  

There is one pilgrimage from which all others come; it is a pilgrimage to the land where it all started with the birth of Jesus Christ.

It is the most inspiring journey Christians can take! This one will shine the light on all you've read in the Bible and listened to in homilies and will strengthen your faith. With our own eyes and our words and prayers, we can witness our faith in the same places where Jesus taught apostles the prayer of Our father with His own words! 

From Jerusalem with Pater Noster chapel to Getsemani Garden to Via Dolorosa to Holy Sepulchre to the town of Bethlehem, the Basilica of Annunciation in Nazareth to the Church of the Visitation to Mount of Beatitudes at the Sea of Galilee to Basilica of Transfiguration on Mount Tabor to Cana with the Wedding Church each of those places will shine the light of immense love and hope God laid before us. 

A pilgrimage to Holy Land is a  pilgrimage of a new dimension; see if you can reveal it to yourself!
