12 Days Pilgrimage to the Holy Land & Jordan

A pilgrimage to the Holy Land & Jordan will be an experience you will never forget. Christians have been going on pilgrimages from the very beginning of our faith. Early Christians visited the birth place Jesus and other sites documented in the Gospels. The Holy Land holds importance as the place of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection.

Also visit the Memorial of Moses upon Mount Nebo is very interesting. The most stunning examples of Byzantine mosaic floors in the whole of Jordan. The Roman city of Jerash, the Madaba mosaic map – the oldest known map of the Holy Land – as well as the Nabatean city of Petra, once described as ‘The rose city half as old as time’, are other highlights of the visit to Jordan.

On our pilgrimage we offer a complete itinerary that includes round-trip airfare, accommodation in first class hotels, breakfast and dinner daily, all transportation, daily Mass and all under excellent organizing, leadership and teaching from Nativity pilgrimage expert staff and Guides.
