Jim Caviezel & Spiritual Leader:

Jim Caviezel

You know actor and famous Catholic, Jim Caviezel, from his role in the Academy Award nominated film, The Passion of the Christ, and his critically acclaimed CBS primetime drama, Person of Interest. Soon you will see him reprise his role as Jesus Christ in the sequel rumored to be titled, The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection. In preparation for the project, Jim has decided to make a pilgrimage to the Holy Land with 206 Tours to walk in Jesus footsteps, visiting the true sites that align with the Passion, and his upcoming role. From Bethlehem and the Via Dolorosa (Stations of the Cross), to the site of Jesus Crucifixion, Tomb, and Transfiguration. Jim will also spend an evening with his fellow pilgrims delivering a powerful lecture about his experiences as well as host a Q&A another evening. With an open-floor, pilgrims will have the chance to ask him questions about his career, life, and inspirations. Callings come when you least expect them - his initials were "J.C.", and he was 33 years old when he was tapped to play the role he did not actively seek - Jesus Christ. Was that an accident? We don't think so. He went on to play Jesus like no one else ever has, or ever could. We have seen Jim Caviezel "act" the Passion, and now is your opportunity to "walk" the Passion with him!
