Pilgrimage: Holy Land March 2023
WALKING WITH JESUS – WITNESSING TO CHRIST
A PILGRIMAGE OF FAITH TO THE HOLY LAND
March 11-23, 2023
Hosted by The Rev. Mary Lessmann
Traveling to the Holy Land, experiencing the places that are the setting for the stories of Scripture, stepping foot on the same land where Jesus walked – this has long been on the ‘bucket list’ of many a Christian. You more than likely know someone who has shared, “My trip to the Holy Land was life-changing!” At Saint Michael, we believe that pilgrimage – setting out together on a spiritual adventure – can be a means of drawing closer to God and deepening our Christian walk.
In March of 2023, the Rev. Mary Lessmann will be leading a group from Saint Michael and All Angels in pilgrimage to the Holy Land. This experience has been custom curated just for our group. We will follow the life of Jesus chronologically, beginning in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born. We will visit Nazareth, where Jesus grew up, and Galilee, where Jesus began his ministry. We will cross into Jordon to tour Petra and the Dead Sea before returning to Israel and concluding our pilgrimage in Jerusalem. Along the way we’ll experience the Mount of the Beatitudes, the Sea of Galilee, the Via Dolorosa and the Church of the Holy Sepulcher – just to name a few of the many sites we’ll explore. And interspersed over our time we’ll have several talks led by experts in the region.
Our trip will take place March 11-23, 2023. Please contact Mary Lessmann with any questions at [email protected].
