Day 2 - Tel Aviv-Overnight on the Mediterranean Coast Early arrival and meet your guide at Ben Gurion Airport. Travel to the ancient port city of Jaffa where Peter raised Tabitha from the dead and where he had a vision of a sheet coming down from heaven, full of unclean animals, and he heard a voice commanding him: "Rise, Peter; kill and eat;" a sign to Peter that Gentiles and non-Jews, could receive the Holy Spirit and join the Church. Have Mass and time for lunch. Travel up the Mediterranean coast to Caesarea where the Romans held Paul prisoner, and to Mount Carmel and to Mukhraka where Elijah confronted the false prophets of Baal and where the Carmelite Order was started. Dinner and overnight overnight in Galilee.

Dinner each night at the hotel in Galilee.

We then head to the village of Ein Karem, the birthplace of St John the Baptist and to the Church of Visitation where the Blessed Virgin Mary visited her cousin, Elizabeth, and proclaimed the 'Magnificat'. Then to the Shepherd's Fields where the angels announced the birth of Jesus. Then we visit the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem that stands upon the site where Jesus was born. Mass in Bethlehem.

Visit the cave of betrayal then the cave of Assumption of Mary to heaven. Dinner and overnight in Jerusalem.


Day 8 - Early in the morning we retrace the last steps of Jesus. As we walk along the Via Dolorosa, praying the Stations of the Cross, we reflect on the greatness of His sacrifice. Finally we arrive at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, built over the site of the Crucifixion and the burial, for Mass. While in the Old City of Jerusalem we visit St. Anne’s Church, the home of the Virgin Mary and her parents. We pass the Ecce Homo where Pilate proclaimed “Behold the Man;” the Western Wall, the most holy place for Jews.
