OLMC Holy Land Pilgrimage - Departure
Our OLMC pilgrims depart today for their program "Called to Discipleship: In the Footsteps of Jesus." The group includes other pilgrims from the eastern United States and the Ukraine. The program explores the life of Jesus and our faith while walking in His footsteps in Galilee, Bethlehem, Nazareth, and Jerusalem. It allows the participants the unique opportunity of experiencing the "fifth Gospel," that is, the geography and historical background of Sacred Scripture. This is the first time this unique program is offered in conjunction with the Salesian Pontifical Seminary - Jerusalem. The program is co-presented by Michael Morison, pastoral associate & master catechist, and Fr. Biju Michael, president of the seminary and professor of moral theology. The seminary will award a pontifical certificate for participation to each pilgrim. Please keep us in your prayers as we will be holding our parish in prayer at our daily Masses.
