Successful Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
07 Aug 2018
Father Leo led thirty six Pilgrims as they made their way through Israel and the Palestinian Territories visiting sites associated with Jesus, including Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Nazareth and Galilee.
Highlights included Mass at the place of His birth in the Church of the Nativity and also on Calvary in the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre, the place of his death. The most atmospheric Mass was however on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, where it was easy to envisage the landscape that He would have seen. It was a moving and truly inspiring experience! There were pilgrims from many places including OGs and past parents and eight couples renewed their wedding vows at Cana.
