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.  Many renewed their wedding vows here. Then we drove to Nazareth for mass at The Church of the Annunciation.

Next we visited Kfar Kedem, a setting where we experienced life in the time of Jesus from donkeys and goats to making bread and cheese. Here are a few greetings from 1st century pilgrims!

Returning to the Sea of Galilee, we visited the Ancient Boat at Kibbutz Nof Ginosar. At night we had a bonfire on the shore of the sea and the pilgrims had the opportunity for confessions with our priests.
