About 30 pilgrims journeyed with Joe and Julie in March this year to Israel. As this was an ecumenical pilgrimage, Fr Sebastian from Malta was invited as the Catholic Spiritual director. He celebrated Mass at various holy shrines and Simon Black from SOJ Community was invited as the Protestant spiritual director. Joe and Julie were the "spiritual " tour guides and Rami Muayer was the area tour guide. He commented "I haven't seen an ecumenical group of pilgrims before and I'm amazed at the unity." Married couples renewed their wedding vows in Cana witnessed by Fr Sebastian. For many this was the highlight of the trip. "Scripture will never be the same again" was voiced many times.
A big THANK YOU to Andrew Black and Harvest Pilgrimages - they did a fantastic job in organising this trip.
