Holy Land Pilgrimage with Fr. Appel and Fr. Anstey , October 4-15, 2021

Dear Friends,

It is a joy to invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Since our youth we have heard the Gospel stories about the Lord Jesus walking and teaching in Jerusalem, Capernaum, and Galilee. We will be seeing those places and much more. Our visit will give us an opportunity of walking in the footsteps of Jesus, our Blessed Mother Mary, and the very first disciples. Each day we will celebrate Mass at one of the holy places and reflect on the Gospel text appropriate to the place we visit. This pilgrimage will forever change the way you read and understand the Scriptures. We hope you will be able to join us on what promises to be a grace-filled journey to the land from where it at all started.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Fr. Paul Appel and Fr. Kevin Anstey
