/ March 2023 Jerusalem Pilgrimage
March 2023 Pilgrimage to Jerusalem

Notice: The Pilgrimage has been postponed to the third week of March 2023 for the Feast of the Veneration of the Holy Cross. Applications are still open.



We are pleased to announce that after three years of covid lockdown, we can once again resume our pilgrimage to Jerusalem.  We are also blessed to announce that the cost is very reasonable despite the rise in expenses.  Please consider showing support to the Jerusalem Church and the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience the blessings of the Holy City in a very personal and spiritual manner.
