Holy Land Pilgrimage: Itinerary Details
The Glimmer Tours Footsteps of Jesus tour is a Holy Land pilgrimage experience of a lifetime.
From youth, we have been enriched with the Gospel stories of Jesus walking and teaching in Jerusalem, Capernaum, and Galilee. He worked miracles around the Sea of Galilee, Jericho and Cana. He was born in Bethlehem, grew up in Nazareth, and was crucified at Golgotha. Through our pilgrimage of the Holy Land, we will be offered the unique opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Jesus, our Blessed Mother and the first disciples.
We hope you will be able to join us on what promises to be a grace-filled journey to the land from which has come our salvation.
