Postponed until May 27-June 8, 2025. New details will be published soon.

Walk where Jesus walked and
You will never be the same!

“Activated Disciple” Pilgrimage to the Holy Land with Jeff and Emily Cavins & Fr. Mike Schmitz

The theme of this pilgrimage is the “Activated Disciple.” It was on the northern shore of the Sea of Galilee that Jesus called the first disciples, but what does that mean for us? On the pilgrimage Jeff will teach us about Jesus, the rabbi, and how disciples were chosen in the 1st century. Jeff will describe the life of a disciple 2000 years ago, and then demonstrate how that can become a reality for people today. Fr. Mike’s homilies will encourage and challenge us to be an “Activated Disciple” who walks with God in the modern world. Our prayer is that young people will hear God’s call on their life and take that step to follow Jesus.

Though this pilgrimage is geared for young adults ages 18 to 35, it is open to those who are able to keep a fast pace. Families definitely are welcome!
