We are blessed beyond words to go with one of Israel’s TOP Pilgrimage guides.

You will never read the Scriptures the same way again!
I (Melissa Overmyer) will lead meditations each day, insights from thirty+ years of Bible study and teach incorporating material from my upcoming new Bible study The Gospel of Jesus.
Fr. Daniel Pajerski,LC will be our pilgrimage chaplain, leading daily Masses and traveling with us from the U.S.
Fr. David Steffy,LC (who will be living in the Holy Land and will join us there) will concelebrate daily Mass at the Holy Sights, give meditations and share insights from his own Holy Land experiences alongside Fr. Daniel. They will be available for Spiritual Direction and Confession- both are all around great Priests- you will love them both!
Cris Tallent, the Pilgrimage architect and escort, will be along to cater to your every need. She has done this trip six times and is so excited to share her vast wealth of experience, love and knowledge of the Holy Land and has planned for us a trip of a lifetime!
Safety: NO WORRIES! I have just returned from Israel and never once felt threatened or afraid. (We even walked late at night everywhere we stayed.) We did not experience a single concern--BE NOT AFRAID!
Accommodations: Woop! Woop! You will see why Cris Tallent is famous for her discriminating taste! Each place is beautiful and conveniently located--just where you will WANT TO BE! Fabulous Hotels, a spectacular former Monastery turned into the Pope’s Guest House in Jerusalem (The Notre Dame Center)- across from the Old City Wall with breathtaking views of the entire city, even GLAMPING under the STARS in the DESERT in Jordan with the Petra extension!

In Jordan we will hop into jeeps to ride into the desert- and in Petra, your choice: camels, donkeys, horses or your own two feet! All taxes, transportation fees and tips included. Just sit back, pinching yourself that you are traveling IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF JESUS... pray, eat and love where you are and who you are with! Truly--the trip of a lifetime!
