Last Day of Cathedral Pilgrimage to the Holy Land

"On our last day, we were given a cultural, historical and political tour of Old Town Jaffa and its port by PhD student, Sami Abu Shehadeh.  A short visit was made to St Peter’s Monastery followed by a last lunch and our departure for Paris.

All the pilgrims agreed that this visit has changed our views of the region and the current situation.  The biblical context and inclusion of prayer and meditation deeply enriched our spiritual experience and our hope for peaceful resolution in this ancient holy land."
