Catholic Journey’s new Holy Land Pilgrimage Tour to the Holy Land and Jordan with Petra will reinvigorate your faith.  You will walk in the Footsteps of Jesus, the Virgin Mary, and the Apostles, visiting and celebrating daily Mass in the most important Shrines and Basilicas of Christianity. You will visit the Basilica of the Annunciation, where the Angel of the Lord appeared to the Virgin Mary, and Mary professed her Magnificat. You will visit Bethlehem and celebrate the birth of Christ at the Church of the Nativity.  You will have the opportunity to renew your baptismal vows at the Jordon River and your wedding vows in Cana, where Jesus performed His first Miracle. You will spend two days around the Sea of Galilee where Jesus began His ministry, preaching to thousands as He gave His sermon on the Mount of Beatitudes, and miraculously fed the multitudes with fish and loaves of bread. The highlight of the Holy Land Pilgrimage Tour will be in Jerusalem where you will pray in the Garden of Gethsemane and experience the Lord’s Passion along the Via Dolorosa, (the Way of the Cross) on the way to the Church of the Holy Sepulchre which marks the place where Jesus was put to death on Calvary, and was buried and rose again! Visits to Mount Tabor,  Sepphoris, Bethany, and Jericho are just some of the other places that you will visit on this Holy Land Pilgrimage Tour.  This pilgrimage tour visits Petra, where the movie Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was filmed.  It is stunning.  Why don’t you go ahead and book the Holy Land & Jordan with Petra Pilgrimage Tour for 2023 or 2024 today?
