Under the guidance of His Eminence Archbishop Mark of Berlin and Germany, the German diocese is organising pilgrimage to the Holy Land 15-26 May 2017 to coincide with the feast of the Ascension of the Lord, which is the Feast day of the Mount of Olives Ascension Convent.
Pilgrims will visit all the great shrines of Jerusalem and its environs, Bethlehem, Jericho, Hebron, Galilee Lake of Gennesaret, with a chance to immerse in the waters of the Jordan, participating in the worship of our monasteries on the Mount of Olives, Gethsemane, and at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre
The cost of the pilgrimage is £900, excluding the cost of air tickets, which must be purchased separately. Payment for the pilgrimage only must be paid in full before 15 February 2017
We will be travelling to and from Holy Land (Jerusalem) through Tel-Aviv airport. The flights will be chosen for the convenience of travelling with the group of pilgrims from Germany, who are organising this trip. Our parish has been allocated 15 places on this pilgrimage.
The preferred method of payment is by direct transfer to the Cathedral account:
