On Arrival in Tel Aviv meet our Marian Pilgrimages representative and guides for a coach transfer to Bethlehem. Check into the 4 star St. Josephs Hotel for 2 nights, dinner and breakfast. Day 3 Monday, May 22 - Bethlehem
After breakfast we visit the birthplace of Jesus. In Bethlehem, you will have the opportunity to view the Shepherds Fields (Luke 2:8). In the caves of these fields, you are still able to see the soot marks of fires that shepherds lit to keep warm. The tour concludes at the Manger Square, which stands in front of the Church of the Nativity. As you enter the Church, you will proceed down to the Grotto of the Nativity which marks the spot of Our Saviors birth (Matthew 2:1-18). Beneath the altar, there is a silver star and a Latin inscription that states: HIC DE VIRGINE MARIA JESUS CHRISTUS NATUS (Here Jesus Christ was born to the Virgin Mary). Following Mass in this Sacred space we will take a short drive to the village of Ein Karem, the birthplace of John the Baptist. It is known that there are two churches in Ein Karem, representing the two homes of Zechariah and Elizabeth. The first is in a valley where the birth of St. John the Baptist is commemorated (Luke 1:39-80) in the Church of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. The second is on a hill where Elizabeth spent five months in seclusion (Luke 1:24) at the Church of the Visitation.

After spending some quality time in the Dead Sea we will continue on to Jerusalem and check in to the wonderful 5 star Notre Dame Centre, located at the ancient walls of the old town for 3 nights with breakfast and dinner. Before or After Dinner, depending on how our time is, we will walk into the Old Town of Jerusalem and have the opportunity to visit the Western Wall, which is the last remnant of the Jewish Temple after it was destroyed in 70 A.D. Continue with a visit to the house of the High Priest Caiaphas (Church of St. Peter in Gallicantu). This Church commemorates where Jesus was examined and eventually imprisoned before the Council in Jerusalem. It also commemorates Peters Denial of Christ (John 18:15-18), Peters repentance, and Jesus forgiveness of Peter. Day 12 Wednesday, May 31 - Mount of Olives
After breakfast, you will make your way to the Mount of Olives, where you will be able to take in the beautiful, panoramic view of Jerusalem. Historically, the Mount of Olives was a mandatory transit point for Jesus during many iconic moments. Visit the Pater Noster Shrine where Jesus taught His disciples the Lords Prayer (Pater Noster) (Luke 11:1-4). You will have the opportunity to stop at Dominus Flevit which is a Church that commemorates where Jesus wept for Jerusalem (Luke 19:41). Continue on to Gethsemane, a garden at the foot of the Mount of Olives. Jesus brought His disciples here to pray the night before He was crucified (Luke 22:29-53). The Garden still contains trees with roots that date back to the time of Jesus. Your next stop, the Church of All Nations, is built over the Rock of Agony. This is where Jesus prayed alone on the night of His arrest. Throughout this time, you are invited to remain in prayer and to reflect on Christs agony that He experienced. You will also visit the Upper Room on Mt. Zion. The Upper Room is where Jesus and His disciples celebrated the Last Supper (Matthew 26:17-30) and where Jesus appeared to His disciples after His Death and Resurrection (Mark 16:14). In addition, visit the nearby Benedictine Church of the Dormition. Tradition tells us that this Church is where Mary, the Mother of Jesus, fell asleep. This evening we will return to the Garden of Gethsemane and the Church of All Nations and have a very special Holy Hour at dusk overlooking the ancient walls of Jerusalem. Day 13 Thursday, June 1 - Via Dolorosa & the Holy Sepulcher
This morning you will have a very early wakeup to begin the Via Dolorosa (The Way of the Cross) at the Antonia Fortress. This is the spot where Jesus was condemned to death by Pontius Pilate (John 18:28-19:16). Following His condemnation, He was taken (on the Road to Calvary) to His place of Crucifixion. Reflect upon the Stations of the Cross as you travel through the markets of the Old City to the Church of the Holy Sepulcher (Luke 23:26-33). This sacred destination is the site of Calvary (Jesus crucifixion place) and His tomb (Luke 23: 50-55). Celebrate Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre. Following Mass we will stay in Jerusalem Old Town for lunch. After lunch you will continue your day with a visit to the Church of St. Annes, the home of Jesus maternal grandparents (Anne and Joachim). Following this visit and a little free time in the Old Town we will return to the hotel for dinner and overnight at your hotel. Day 14 Friday, June 2 - Depart Tel Aviv
