Pilgrimage to the Holy Land 2023

Friday 5th – Saturday 13th May

Tiberias (3 nights) – Jerusalem (5 nights) 

We will begin our Pilgrimage in Tiberias on the Sea of Galilee from where we will visit Cana, Mount Tabor, Magdala, Tabgha, Capernaum, and Nazareth. A drive through the Jordan Valley will take us to the Baptismal site of Jesus, Yasar Al-Yahud, and on to Jerusalem where we will visit the Old City and the main sacred places, with an easy day to explore the Holy City at leisure after Mass at Ein Karem, the place of the Visitation. We will visit Bethlehem where we will pray in the Church of the Nativity and at the Shepherds Fields, and we will end our pilgrimage with Mass at Emmaus where the disciples recognised Jesus at the breaking of the bread.

Help us save our 1856 church!

The church of St. Alphonsus and Columba was built in 1856. Unfortunately, because it is exposed to the wind and rain on Killiney Hill, it is suffering from a serious water-ingress problem
