Holy Land Pilgrimage -- Day Seven

Today we headed for Bethlehem to visit the shepherd's fields, Church of the Nativity and the Cave of St. Jerome. Mass was held at the Church of St. Catherine's near the Church of the Nativity.   In the afternoon we toured   Yad Vashem, the museum commemorating the Holocaust. After dinner we heard a bit from Fr. Frechette and his work in Haiti.
