Dear Bishop students and families,
We are very proud to announce the Bishop Montgomery High School 2020 Spring Break Tour to Israel and Jerusalem! This tour is open to all BMHS students and their families, and will take place April 13-20, 2020.
The Holy Land attracts people of all faiths not only as the heart of three of the great religions of the world - Christianity, Judaism, and Islam - but as an ancient birthplace of humanity, and a modern hub of culture and society. On our pilgrimage, we will go "in search of the 'footprints' of God in that land, rightly called 'holy', pursuing them as it were in the stones, the hills, the waters which provided the setting for the earthly life of the Son of God." (Pope John Paul II, 1999).
We will visit Nazareth and the Sea of Galilee, and retrace the steps of Jesus through the holy city of Jerusalem: the Upper Room, Gethsemane, the Way of the Cross, Calvary, and the site of the Empty Tomb! We will also see the ancient cities of Caesarea, Safed, and Masada; eat and shop in the multifaceted ethnic quarters of Jerusalem; and swim in the Dead Sea!
Please join us for this extraordinary journey of faith and friendship among the people and faiths of the original home of Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Please open the brochure below and follow the simple instructions to join the tour!
