Holy Land

Jerusalem & Galilee

October 1 - 9, 2021

A Napa Institute Experience in the Holy Land

October 1-9, 2021


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.

Chris Stefanick, author, speaker, and television host, will join us as our principal tour leader, providing reflections on the life of Christ as we journey through the Holy Land. Fr. Angelos Sebastian, the pastor of St. Killian Parish in Orange County, CA, will serve as the chaplain for the group. In addition to celebrating daily Mass, he will be available for confession and spiritual direction throughout the trip.

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!
