SSJE to Lead a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land from May 28-June 9, 2018
By James Koester, Superior | The Society of St. John the Evangelist
Warm greetings to you from the SSJE Brothers.
I am writing to announce that we will be leading a 13-day pilgrimage to the Holy Land, from May 28 through June 9, 2018. We believe that this pilgrimage could be a life-changing experience for you. Visiting the Holy Land will help you to understand the land and the culture in which Jesus lived and in which many of the Bible’s stories take place. Having a visual memory of these places will forever change the way you read and understand Scripture, and will transform your relationship with Jesus. In addition, you will gain insight into the present-day situation in the Holy Land and be better able to understand its complexities. We believe this trip will transform you in significant ways.

Four of our Brothers – David Vryhof, Jonathan Maury, Nicholas Bartoli and Keith Nelson – will be leading this pilgrimage along with our friend and guide in Jerusalem, Canon Iyad Qumri. We are certain that the travel within Israel/Palestine, the teaching, the shared worship, the gracious Middle Eastern hospitality, and the fellowship will be a wonderfully enriching experience for you.
