Holy Land Retreat
May 14-27, 2017

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.

The 2017 Holy Land Retreat will be led by Leslie Hoppe, OFM, and Barbara Reid, OP.
