Mountain Sky Area pilgrimage to the Holy Land

May 16, 2018

"As Christians, we are all called to be pilgrims, navigating the way to God. For many this pilgrimage is figurative, a spiritual journey that deepens our awareness. Some, however, choose to undertake physical journeys to the lands most sacred to our tradition," a quote from Thomas Merton.

Bishop Karen Oliveto invites all lay and clergy on a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. The trip will take place Jan. 28 to Feb. 6, 2019. "It is a powerful, life-changing experience to walk the paths that Jesus walked,” said Bishop Karen. “It opens up the Bible and causes us to reflect more deeply on the stories that ground our faith. I pray that the clergy who participate in this pilgrimage will find their ministries enlivened through this trip."

Bishop Karen encourages people to take this pilgrimage: “Join the Mountain Sky family as we follow in the footsteps of Jesus in a pilgrimage to the Holy Land. This powerful trip will expand your knowledge of scripture and deepen your faith as we visit sacred sites, worship together, and encounter God in ancient places so central to our faith. Journey with us!”

This pilgrimage is with Educational Opportunities (EO). EO has provided educational Christian travel programs since 1974.
