Family Holy Land – Christmas – December 2016

28 December 2016 to 06 January 2017


Early Morning Walk on Via Dolorosa, Mass at Holy Sepulchre, Western Wall and Dancing in Bethlehem

Our last day of pilgrimage was a fantastic conclusion to a deeply spiritual and whole lot of fun adventure. Enjoy today’s recap as we wake up at 5:00 AM to pray the Stations of the Cross before the streets of the Old City turn into chaos. Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre (excellent concluding homily here).

Then we gave everyone some free time to enjoy Jerusalem before loading the bus with our luggage and heading to the Western Wall. We ended the day at the Grotto Bedouin Tent Restaurant in Bethlehem for great salads, grilled meats and most fun — DANCING!

This was not your average pilgrimage to the Holy Land! We have taken many, many families to the Holy Land and this was a unique pilgrimage for families to go together. It was also for single people, couples — anyone who loves Our Lord and Lady!

This pilgrimage was in conjunction with Franciscan University of Steubenville with youthful Franciscan priest, Fr. Matt Russick.

This trip was strategically placed during Christmas break so that school-aged children could come along. Steve & Janet’s Holy Land pilgrimage are great for children, full of excitement like riding camels, floating in the Dead Sea, a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee.

Learning how to sling stones where David killed Goliath, carrying palm branches down the Palm Sunday Road and much more. And let’s just face it…kids like Steve’s adventurous exuberance.

Parents and grandparents pay tens of thousands of dollars to send their children to university where many will lose their faith. Why not spend a fraction of that to root them in the faith so they will stay faithful for a lifetime?
