Holy Land Retreat - May 2016

Two weeks in the Holy Land

May 15 – 28, 2016 with vanThanh Nguyen, SVD

For two weeks each spring, the Holy Land Retreat provides an opportunity to reflect prayerfully on the scriptures while you travel in Israel. A portion of each day is spent visiting biblical sites for reflection and prayer. Retreat conferences with CTU faculty develop the religious impact of the biblical and archaeological sites visited. Begin near the Sea of Galilee; visit Nazareth, Mount Tabor, Capernaum, and other holy sites. Then head south to Jerusalem and visit the Mount of Olives, the Holy Sepulchre, Gethsemane, Bethlehem, the Judean desert, and beyond. 

Cost for 2016: $2,750 plus airfare. Based on double occupancy and half-board, the trip includes entrance fees, gratuities, retreat conferences, ground transportation, and breakfast and dinner each day. Does not include roundtrip airfare from Chicago, lunches, drinks, visas, or any expenses incurred for events outside of the scheduled program. Single occupancy, where possible, is an extra $850. Non-refundable deposit of $250 due with application (deducted from total).

(Trips do not include airfare. Participants will be told the flight arrangements of the faculty members, and thus will know the times and places for booking their own travel.)

Deadline to Apply: March 1, 2016
