Welcome Message from Reverend Francisco Rodriguez:

I wish to invite you on a journey that has the power to completely transform your relationship with God and discover the richness of living the Word in the middle of the same places where it was proclaimed. A great archaeologist calls the Holy Land the “Fifth Gospel” as this Earth announces itself the work of God and his greatness. In the middle of a world that is always in a hurry, we will have the opportunity to be like Mary at the feet of the Lord and we will see how it is true that being there is having the best part. We will see Nazareth where Christ was conceived; Bethlehem, where he was born; Bethany beyond Jordan (Jordan) where he was baptized; Galilee where he spent most of his public life announcing the Good News and Jerusalem where he died and rose again. Let’s go together in the footsteps of Christ!
