Itinerary

Make your way to your airport where you will board your overnight flight. Your meals are served on board.

Day 2 | Tuesday, November 12: Arrive in Tel Aviv and transfer to Tiberias

Upon arrival at Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, head to the baggage claim area to collect your luggage. Proceed to the Arrival’s Hall, where you will be greeted by your tour guide and driver. Drive up to Galilee for dinner and overnight.

Day 3 | Wednesday, November 13: Nazareth & Cana
Theme: The Annunciation

This morning we drive to Nazareth to visit the Church of the Annunciation and St. Joseph’s workshop, now a church. Within the Church of the Annunciation, we will make our way down to the Grotto to see the remains of the house of the Blessed Mother, and where the Angel of the Lord announced the good news to Mary. Celebrate Mass in this Church and visit Nazareth Village, a recreation of what Nazareth looked like at the time of Jesus. Then continue to Cana. It was here that Jesus performed His first miracle, changing water into wine (John 2.). During your time at the Wedding Church, married couples will have the chance to take part in a ceremony to renew their wedding vows to each other. At the end of the day we return to the Sea of Galilee region.

Day 4 | Thursday, November 14: Sea of Galilee
Theme: The Ministry of Christ in the Galilee

This morning we are on a boat on the beautiful Sea of Galilee, where Jesus spent much of His Ministry (Luke 5:1). At the Mount of Beatitudes we remember the Sermon on the Mount (Luke 6:20-49). At Tabgha is the Church of Multiplication where, with just five loaves of bread and two fish (Luke 9:10-17), He fed the crowd of 5,000. Nearby is St. Peter’s Primacy, where Peter confirmed his Love of Jesus (John 21). In this very place, Jesus anointed Peter to lead the Church and was to become the first Pope. Visit Capernaum, the town of Jesus. Here Jesus lived, in Peter’s House, and launched the ministry that was to change our lives and the world. We celebrate Mass here. In the afternoon visit Caesarea Philippi where Jesus anointed Peter to lead his Church.

Day 5 | Friday, November 15: Mt. Tabor – Caesarea - Jerusalem
Theme: The Transfiguration

This morning we ascend Mt Tabor (Matthew 17:1-50). At this site, Christ’s Divinity was revealed. Celebrate Mass at the Basilica of the Transfiguration. From the top of Mt Tabor, enjoy a dramatic view the Valley of Armageddon, before driving to Caesarea Maritima located on the shores of the Mediterranean. Built by Herod the Great, Caesarea was where St. Peter baptized the first gentile convert, Cornelius (Acts 10). We will see the Roman theatre Herod’s Palace, view the Hippodrome, and the harbor from which St. Paul sailed on his journeys to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the ancient world. Continue the drive up to the Judean Hills where you enjoy your first view of holy, complicated, Jerusalem from Mt Scopus.

Day 6 | Saturday, November 16: Bethlehem & Ein Karem
Theme: The Visitation and Nativity

This morning we go the village of Ein Karem to visit to the Church of St John the Baptist, which marks his birthplace (Luke 1.5). Nearby is Church of Visitation that commemorates the visit of our Blessed Mother to her cousin, Elizabeth, staying with her for 3 months (Luke 1.39). Many people pray the Mystery of the Rosary as they walk up the hill to the Church. Later drive to Bethlehem to visit the fields where the Angel appeared to the shepherds to proclaim the birth of Jesus Christ, (Luke 2:8). We enter the caves where shepherds took shelter in ancient times and see the soot marks of the fires they lit to keep warm. Continue to Manger Square and the Church of the Nativity. We enter the church through the door of humility and proceed down to the Grotto of the Nativity, which marks the place of Our Saviour’s birth (Matthew 2:1-18). Beneath the altar, there is a silver star and a Latin inscription that states: HIC DE VIRGINE MARIA JESUS CHRISTUS NATUS (Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary). Following Mass in Bethlehem return to the hotel in Jerusalem for dinner and an overnight.

Day 7 | Sunday, November 17: Jerusalem: Mt. Of Olives - Gethsemane - Mt. Zion (Upper Room)
Theme: Palm Sunday and the Agony in the Garden

We start the day on the Mount of Olives with a breath-taking panoramic view of Jerusalem. Visit the Pater Noster Shrine where Jesus taught His disciples the Lord’s Prayer (Pater Noster) (Luke 11:1-4). Then we walk down the Palm Sunday Road, which reminds us of Christ’s triumphant entry into Jerusalem. Along this route there stands Dominus Flevit which marks the place where Jesus wept over Jerusalem (Luke 19:41). Continue down to Gethsemane; it was here that Jesus brought His disciples to pray the night before He was crucified (Luke 22:29-53). The Garden still contains trees with roots that date back to the time of Jesus. Next to the garden is the Church of All Nations, built over the “Rock of Agony”, where Jesus prayed alone before His arrest. From Gethsemane Jesus was taken to the house of the High Priest Caiaphas on Mt Zion, where we see the dungeons in which He was imprisoned. Also at this place, marked by the Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu, is where Peter denied Christ three times and wept bitterly (John 18:15-18), repented and was forgiven. On the upper part of Mt Zion, we visit the Upper Room, where Jesus celebrated the Last Supper with His disciples, (Matthew 26:17-30).

Day 8 | Monday, November 18: Jerusalem: Western Wall-Yad Vashem

Today we revisit the Old City to see the Church of St. Anne’s, the traditional birthplace of the Virgin Mary. Nearby is the Pool of Bethesda, where Jesus healed the crippled man (John 5:1-9). End the day with a visit the Western Wall, which is the last remnant of the Jewish Temple destroyed in 70 A.D.End the day with a visit to Yad Vashem, the memorial to the Holocaust. Free afternoon to explore the area on your own. Dinner and overnight.

Day 9 | Tuesday, November 19: Jerusalem: Via Dolorosa - Holy Sepulchre
Theme: The Way of the Cross, The Crucifixion, The Resurrection

Very early this morning we walk together in prayerful procession along the Via Dolorosa (The Way of the Cross). We start at the Antonia Fortress, where Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate (John 18:28-19:16) and receives His cross. We end at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, which marks the place of the Crucifixion & the Resurrection, (Luke 23:26-33). After Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher we return to the hotel for breakfast. Rest of day is free to reflect, or to explore Jerusalem on your own. Dinner and overnight.

Day 10 | Wednesday, November 20: Jerusalem – USA

After an early breakfast and heartfelt farewells, transfer to the Tel Aviv airport for return flights home.
