To walk in the Holy Land, to experience “the Fifth Gospel” of pilgrimage, to meet and engage with the local people, the “living stones” of the Holy Land….is far more than an exciting tour. It is a rite of passage in one’s faith journey that will define life before and after. The tour programs of Holy Land Trust began nearly 20 years ago with a historic retracing of the “Journey of the Magi” from Iraq to Bethlehem, and have carried the same mark of authentic, individual and purpose-made pilgrimages for people of all faiths ever since.
Our Pilgrimage programs range from open-brochure bookings to custom-made experiences for faith communities, small groups, and families, couples, and individuals. Each program offers a unique experience designed for the specific needs of the pilgrims or pilgrim. Members of every faith, denomination, and confession are welcome to join us, based on their needs, interests, length of time, and price range.
A brief look at the itinerary and the costs
Here is a look at a sample schedule of a Christian Pilgrimage. But every tour is different. We understand how important it is to customize the needs of the group, working tirelessly in dialogue to find the perfect program. Some groups like to focus more on churches and Palestinian Christian leaders. Others like the historical and archeological sites. Others prefer meeting with an array of different institutions. Whatever your group’s needs are, Holy Land Trust will make it happen.
Up To Date Curriculum
As new historical discoveries emerge in the Holy Land, as the social landscape changes in your own communities back home, Holy Land Trust ensure that each tour is updated to reflect the most pressing issues of your group. We spend as much time as it takes to ensure we are building just the right package for you.
What to expect after your Christian Pilgrimage?
For many Christians, a pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a life-changing and an affirmation of their faith journey. These tours bring to the surface important theological considerations and new questions about how the life of Christ applies to the individual. It opens up altogether different understandings of the Bible by giving you a physical context to play the stories and homilies in.
Explore all the essential geographical areas of the life of Christ: Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Galilee.
Meet the longest living Christian communities in the world and explore how the histography of Jesus has remained at the heart of families for thousands of years.
Not to be taken lightly, the Palestinian cuisine is something of an experience all unto itself – particularly home-cooked meals!
