The Holy Land

Episcopal Journeys helps you to echo the invitation to “Come and See” to your community. From Bethlehem to Nazareth, from Capernaum to Jerusalem, you will be able to walk in the footsteps of Christ. If pilgrimage is truly at the heart of our faith, then visiting Israel should make our hearts beat with even more fervor and excitement.
