Jan 8 -- Nazareth and Cana

Today we toured the area west of the Sea of Galilee.  Early we went to Cana, where Jesus performed His first recorded miracle at the wedding feast (John 2:1-11,) turning water into wine.  There we shared the opportunity for couples to renew wedding vows. We had Mass at The Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth.  After we toured the nearby site of Joseph’s workshop.  Nearby is Mary’s Well, (Luke 2:4, 39, 51.) Next we visited Kfar Kedem, a setting where we experienced life in the time of Jesus. Returning to the Sea of Galilee, we visited the Ancient Boat at Kibbutz Nof Ginosar. Tonight we had a special St. Peter fish dinner followed by a bonfire and the opportunity for confessions with our priests on the shore of the sea.
