Holy Land & Jordan Pilgrimage!!!
The Protopresbyteral District of the South of the Byzantine Catholic Archeparchy of Pittsburgh, is sponsoring a pilgrimage to the Holy Land and Jordan, led by Fr. Elias Rafaj (St. John Chrysosotom Byzantine Catholic Church-Houston, Texas). Our group will depart for Tel Aviv, Israel on Apr. 17, 2017 Houston (other departure cities can be arranged at minimal cost-please inquire for further information). The pilgrimage will focus on all the famous Holy Places and especially on the sites important to Byzantine & Roman Catholics, as well as the ancient sites of Petra and Jerash in Jordan. We will also spend time with the local Melkite Byzantine Catholics whose communities trace back to the apostles and their parishes are the heirs of the Ancient Faith. The Nativity Pilgrimage Tour Company that is organizing our stay in the Middle East is owned and run by Christians from the Holy Land. Our Pilgrimage will return to the US on April 28, 2017.
The cost (includes lunch and dinner, taxes, entrance fees and more) is $3,400 pp. (including airfare). Land-only package is available. For more information please contact or speak with Fr. Elias to receive a full detailed brochure. Fr. Elias can be reached by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org or by cell phone at: 713-256-8953.
