In the Footsteps of Jesus
Fr. Joe Rice is leading a 10-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land
REGISTRATION IS OPEN UNTIL SEPTEMBER 30, 2018
Dear Parishioners, Families, and Friends,
Have you ever considered a pilgrimage to the Holy Land? Next March I will be leading one.
On this pilgrimage to the Holy Land you will join pilgrims who, for two thousand years, “have gone in search of the ‘footprints’ of God in that land, rightly called ‘holy,’ pursuing them as if it were in the stones, the hills, the waters which provided the setting for the earthly life of the Son of God.” (Pope John Paul II).
You will pray in Nazareth at the place where the “Word became flesh” (John 1:14) through Mary's “yes”. You will visit the Basilica of the Nativity in Bethlehem, walk around Manger Square, and visit Shepherd’s Field. There will be an opportunity to meditate at the Sea of Galilee. We will retrace the steps of Jesus through the holy city of Jerusalem: the Upper Room, Gethsemane, the Way of the Cross, Calvary, and the site of the Empty Tomb! The highlight of each day will be the celebration of Mass. Our days will also include reflections, song, and the opportunity to shop among the local merchants. We will pray for a just peace in the land where Jesus, the Prince of Peace, was born!
Please join us on this extraordinary journey of faith. It is our hope that you will say, “YES” to this invitation to the most invaluable gift that you can ever give yourself - a pilgrimage to The Holy Land. And for those of you who wish, please also consider the optional extension to Jordan! The last day to sign up for the pilgrimage has been moved to September 30, 2018. Brochures can be picked up in the back of the church or can be emailed to you.
Sincerely in Christ,
For more information you can reach me at the rectory phone number (508) 852- 6459 or by email at Frjoe@stlukes-parish.org.
