Join the Rt. Rev. Chandler H. Jones and the Rev. John W. Klein on a journey to Jerusalem and the holy sights of our Lord’s ministry. Trace the footsteps of Jesus throughout the Holy Land. All Christians, if they can afford the time and treasure, owe it to themselves to go on pilgrimage to Jerusalem. The package price is $2998.00 per person, double occupancy. This includes all airfare, four star hotels, breakfast and dinner daily, all entrance fees, and a trained guide.

Bishop Jones and Father Klein will be the spiritual directors of the pilgrimage. This is a ten day religious pilgrimage in a traditional, orthodox Anglican manner. Morning and Evening Prayer will be said daily. The Holy Eucharist will be celebrated at major holy sites, as well as the singing of hymns in the holiest settings. Participants will carry a wooden cross along the Via Dolorosa, while walking the Way of the Cross. Come and see so many places that will enlighten your understanding of the Bible and our Faith.

From Father Klein: “It is important to note that this is not like other tourist’s vacations in Israel. This is a life-changing Christian Pilgrimage to the holiest places on earth, where we bring our hearts and souls before the Savior, walking the Way of the Cross and entering the Holy Sepulcher prepared by the Ministry of Word and Sacrament. When comparing what Bishop Chad and I are able to deliver, a truly Anglican deeply devotional pilgrimage, I doubt anyone will find a better option……..”
Presiding Bishop Walter Grundorf of the Anglican Province of America, along with his wife Mary, will participate in this trip.
