 2020 Pilgrimage to the Holy Land  (March 1-10, 2020)

Pilgrimages to the Holy Land are an enduring tradition for a variety of religions as the place has great significance for them all. For Catholic pilgrimages, the Holy Land holds importance as the place where Jesus' birth, ministry, death and resurrection took place—covering locations such as Bethlehem, Nazareth and Jerusalem—taking pilgrims to follow the paths where Jesus once walked and taught.
