Holy Land Pilgrimage with Chris Stefanick

Register soon, space is limited
Going to the Holy Land changed the way I pray; changed the way I share the faith; changed my life. You can’t not be changed when you touch the rock Jesus was crucified on, enter the empty tomb, walk along the Sea of Galilee and bow to enter the Bethlehem basilica through the small “door of humility.” Come with me on an epic journey in the footsteps of Jesus, June 2017!
Monsignor Richard Gilles, pastor of Queen of the Apostles Parish, Tomah, will be the chaplain on the trip. www.reallifecatholic.com
