Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Archbishop Smith

An Encounter with Christ in the Land Where He Lived

November 29 - December 10, 2017 | 12 Days, 10 nights
with Daily Mass at Pilgrimage Churches and Shrines


“Only through a personal encounter with the Lord can we embrace with hope the call to be missionary disciples of Jesus Christ. The Holy Land offers pilgrims the opportunity to walk where Jesus taught, healed, and gave His life for our salvation. It offers the possibility of an encounter with Christ in the land where He lived.

I invite you to join me and fellow pilgrims for a journey to the place rendered holy by the very presence of Jesus Himself.”

✠ Most Rev. Richard W. Smith
Archbishop of Edmonton
