A Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

Would you like to visit Bethlehem, Nazareth, the Sea of Galilee, Jerusalem, and more?

These are the places where Jesus lived, died and rose from the dead.

A visit, not as tourists, but as people of Faith, offers the opportunity to strengthen our relationship with Him and He with us.

The Bible readings at Mass come alive. Interested? Call Fr. Tom Zurcher, C.S.C., 574-233-2179, to explore the possibility of a pilgrimage in 2024.
