Jerusalem & Galilee


Join the Napa Institute on pilgrimage to the Holy Land! We will visit important religious sites such as Bethlehem and Mount of Olives, pray the stations of the Cross along the Via Dolorosa, walk the Emmaus trail, and celebrate Mass at historic churches, including the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.

We are excited to announce that Ben Akers, Associate Professor of Theology at the Augustine Institute, will be joining us as our academic lead, providing reflections on the life of Christ as we journey through the Holy Land.

Reflecting on the scriptures and praying with other pilgrims at these holy and historic sites is a truly formative experience. We invite you to take this journey with us!
