Holy Land

Going to the Holy Land!

by Father Brian J. Soliven on Sunday February 12, 2023

I am excited to officially announce an amazing opportunity for our parish. This November, we are embarking upon a pilgrimage to the very places where the Church began – the Holy Land. In the bulletin this Sunday, you will see a detailed itinerary of the amazing sites we will pray and visit. To see and touch the very places where Jesus walked will change how you read the Bible. It will open up the biblical world in fresh new ways. Christ will come alive. For the past few Sunday’s we've been hearing in the Gospel readings the famous account of Jesus' Sermon on the Mount, which one Scripture scholar called, “the greatest sermon ever preached.” (Cf. Matthew 5). Imagine now reading that very sermon on the exact mountain he said it. The glistening sunlight reflecting off the surface of the Sea of Galilee will be in the background. The same green, soft grass will be beneath your feet. You will hear the words of Jesus like never before.
