Pilgrimages
Our study pilgrimages vary between 8 and 14 days, offering distinctive and transformative features that make them ideal for personal, parish and diocesan programs. This section includes descriptions and links to dates and fees for each Pilgrimage.

Footsteps of Jesus is a 10-day study pilgrimage focusing on the scriptures, sites, and landscapes associated with Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. The course roughly follows a chronological arc of the life of Jesus.

Emphasizing the lived experience of pilgrimage as Christian formation, the course encounters the land of Jesus’ ministry, engaging the biblical narratives in their physical, historical, and archaeological contexts. The course includes a 3-day, 2-night excursion to the Galilee and has at least one free afternoon in Jerusalem. Alongside teachings and reflections in the field, occasional mini-lectures prepare course participants for site visits.

The course also engages the Living Stones of Israel and Palestine.

While Footsteps of Jesus has the same aims and objectives as the 14-day Palestine of Jesus course, the latter course provides a slightly more immersive experience with respect to the sites and scriptures of the life of Jesus and the contemporary realities of Israel and Palestine.

In this program, students engage with the Holy Land through a focus on media such as architecture, icons, inscriptions, mosaics, olive wood, sculpture, and stained glass windows.
