- Holy Land Pilgrimage. May 21 – June 1, 2022. You’re invited to join the group for the spiritual adventure of a lifetime. St. Jerome called the Holy Land “The 5th Gospel” because those who visit rarely leave the same as they arrive. To walk where Jesus walked and meet the people of the land brings the Bible stories to life. (This tour has been postponed from 2020 and 2021.).
Canon Vicars Hodge is looking for a half dozen (or more) pilgrims to fill out the May 2022 Holy Land group.
There will be a much larger group going in 2023, but there are advantages to going this year: smaller group, fewer tourists, less time standing in line, time to linger at sites, reduced travel restrictions. Israel is open for tourists, so consider a trip this May. You must act quickly though. Deadlines for hotel bookings are fast approaching. All details: www.trinitytour.org
