Franciscan Holy Land Pilgrimage
Join us on our most popular pilgrimage, the Holy Land and Jordan. Meet your tour in Tel Aviv before traveling up the Mediterranean coast to Mount Carmel and Mount Tabor, the spot of the Transfiguration. Watch pilgrims renew their wedding vows in Cana, see the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth, spend time in Tiberias then board a boat and sail on the Sea of Galilee to Capernaum.
Cross into Jordan where we’ll spend two nights in Amman and visit Petra – one of the Seven Wonders of the World! Next, it’s on to Jerusalem with a stop along the Jordan River to renew our Baptismal Promises.
Visit the Chapel of the Ascension and the Church of the Pater Noster on the summit of the Mount of Olives, with a panoramic view of Jerusalem. Walk in the Garden of Gethsemane and see the Basilica of the Agony before traveling for a swim in the mineral-rich waters of the Dead Sea.
Touch the spot where Jesus was born within the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem and see the birthplace of John the Baptist and the Church of the Visitation in Ein Karem. Then, follow the Via Dolorosa to Golgotha inside the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and venerate the Tomb of Jesus.
