  • Holy Land Pilgrimage Nov-Dec

Traditional Latin Mass Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

With Fr. David Franco, FSSP, Chaplain

Accompanied by Tour Director Susan Kotnik

“Experiencing the Extraordinary Form in the Holy Land”

November 26 – December 9, 2017



Dear Friends:

Join us as we journey to visit the land which is our unique spiritual heritage, the Holy Land – a land promised by God to the Patriarch and his descendants forever.

This land was first called holy by God when He spoke with Moses (Exodus III).  It is considered richly blessed forever.

Why?  It is the country of the Patriarchs Adam, Noe, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. It was the home of the Kings Saul, David and Solomon.  It is the center for the Prophets Isaias, Jeremias, Ezechiel and Daniel.  So many friends of God have lived in this land: Job, Tobias, Judith and Ruth.  Finally, into the Christian age, it is the land of the Twelve Apostles, the Blessed Mother and the earliest Christian saints.

This land has been blessed and cursed, praised and parodied, the ultimate pilgrimage destination.  The Franciscan  custodians call it the “Pearl of the Missions.” It is ever essentially the same – sacred because of God’s frequent visitations and because it is the birthplace of the Son of God.

Pilgrimages to the Holy Land are an enduring tradition for a variety of religions as a place of great significance for all. For Catholic pilgrimages, the Holy Land holds importance as the place where Jesus’ birth, ministry, death and resurrection took place.

On this Traditional Catholic tour to the Holy Land, we offer a complete itinerary under the guidance and spiritual care of recently ordained Fr. David Franco, FSSP.  Daily Mass will be celebrated for the group in the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite.  Our journey takes you in the footsteps of Christ, atop the same stones where Jesus once trod.

Join us for an unforgettable experience and find a new ways of understanding the life of our Blessed Lord and the texts of the Mass and Breviary.
