In the Footsteps of Christ: Saint Michael and All Angels Family Pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Jordan
March 7–18, 2024 | Hosted by the Rev. Ken Brannon
This trip has been canceled
A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is life-changing. Taking this trip with family and friends is even more unique. Join Father Ken as we visit biblical sites, reflect on Jesus' ministry, and encounter God in a whole new way. Mark your calendars now and note the important dates below.
Who may attend?
This pilgrimage is intended primarily for families in good standing at Saint Michael with children under 18. “In good standing” means baptized members of Saint Michael who attend regularly and have a record of giving in the past year. On the lower end of the age range, the pilgrimage will be most enjoyable for children who are at least in third grade, although exceptions may be made depending on the maturity of the child and the composition of the family. Non-Saint Michael members, or people who don’t have children under 18, are welcome to register, but priority will be given to those who fall into the category above.
Online registration will take place on Monday, March 6, at 10 a.m. and a deposit of $500/person is due. This is the most important piece of information. You will be assigned a place on the list based on the time that you register. In past pilgrimages, trips have filled up within minutes. Although you will receive electronic confirmation of your registration, final information about your status (approved, waiting list, etc.) will be communicated to you within several days of registration. Saint Michael plans to offer a trip to the Holy Land every year, with adults and families alternating every other year, so if you don’t get a spot on this trip, there will be more trips in the future.
Our trip will take place March 7–18, 2024. Please contact Ken Brannon with any questions at [email protected].
