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 October of 2023, the Rev. Greg Pickens will be leading a group from Saint Michael and All Angels on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. This experience has been custom curated just for our group. We will follow the life of Jesus by visiting Bethlehem, where Jesus, Nazareth, where Jesus grew up, and Galilee, where Jesus began his ministry, and conclude 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 October 7-19. Please contact Greg Pickens with any questions at [email protected].
