2020 Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

12/04/2019 

Peter’s Way Tours invites you on a 10-day pilgrimage in conjunction with the Order of Malta to the Holy Land, “In the Footsteps of Jesus”. This pilgrimage will take place on November 8–17, 2020, and will visit Nazareth, Cana, Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Ein Karem, and Emmaus.

You will join those pilgrims who, for two thousand years, “have gone in search of the ‘footprints’ of god in that land, rightly called ‘holy,’ pursuing them as it were in the stones, the hills, the waters which provided the setting for the earthly life of the Son of god.” (Pope John Paul II, 1999).

You will pray in Nazareth at the place where the “Word became flesh” (John 1:14) through Mary’s “yes.” You will visit the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem, walk around Manger Square, and visit Shepherd’s Field. We will sing our traditional Christmas carols and reflect on the meaning of this extraordinary event. There will be the opportunity to meditate at the Sea of galilee. We will retrace the steps of Jesus through the holy city of Jerusalem: the Upper Room, gethsemane, the Way of the Cross, Calvary, and the site of the Empty Tomb!

Pilgrimage is a time of faith, conversion, and joy! The highlight of each day will be the celebration of Mass. our days will also include reflections, song, and the opportunity to shop among the local merchants. We will pray for a just peace in the land where Jesus, the Prince of Peace, was born! Please join us on this extraordinary journey of faith. It is our hope that you will say, “YES” to this invitation to the most invaluable gift that you can ever give yourself: a pilgrimage to The Holy Land.
