In January 2014, join Catholic Charities USA for its second trip to experience the history and people in the Holy Land. For 10 days, we will visit sacred sites, explore the biblical roots of our faith, and gain a deeper understanding of the current struggles in this historic and sacred land. During our journey, we will be joined by renowned scripture scholar Father Don Senior, President Emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, as well as local Jewish, Muslim, and Christian leaders committed to a future of peace and healing.
The experience will take participants to local social service projects run by Catholic Relief Services and Caritas Jerusalem to learn about the difference they are making in the lives of people facing difficult realities every day. Presenters from local communities will share their experiences on the economic, social and political circumstances of the region. This once-in-a-lifetime trip will engender reflection and renewal.
Participants will be required to submit reflections prior to and following the pilgrimage.
