Cultural, Academic and Spiritual Pilgrimage for Diocesan Seminarians
June 30 – July 30, 2018
Pray and learn while immersed in holy and historically significant sites throughout the Holy Land – Bethlehem, Jerusalem and Galilee! Receive all the Holy Land has to offer, as well as instruction and direction from the priests and brothers who’ve called this region home for 800 years – The Holy Land Franciscans.
This immersion experience is designed to complement existing formation in diocesan seminaries and is for seminarians who’ve completed at least their first year of theology. The program is an experience of both study and spiritual growth, designed to maximize seminarians’ appreciation of biblical sites in their historical context, as well as within their personal spirituality. The Franciscan Friars collaborate with other scholars and religious leaders in the region. English-speaking professors from the Studium Biblicum Franciscanum provide expert content in both classroom settings and guided visits to the biblical sites.
