Holy Land Pilgrimage

On Tuesday our pilgrims spent 3 hours going into Bethlehem to visit the Church of the Nativity to pray in the manger and venerate the place of Christ’s Holy Birth. The day continued with visits to Shepherds Field where the Shepherds heard the angel tell of the Holy Birth in order to find Him. Following that visit they visited the monasteries of St Symeon and the Holy Cross and also visited the monastery which commemorates the birth of St John the Baptist.
