A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is a walk into layers of Scripture, history, and faith. Your feet touch soil left by the first Christians over 2,000 years ago as you walk in the footsteps of Jesus and the Apostles. Come visit the places where Jesus healed the sick, preached the faith, and died for our salvation. See the empty tomb and stand upon the mount from which He ascended to Heaven, promising that He would always be with us until the end of the ages (Matthew 28:20).

Tekton Ministries has been leading Catholic pilgrimages to the Holy Land for more than 20 years. Working closely with your priest to create thoughtfully planned itineraries, we help make the Catholic faith more tangible to your daily life by taking you where the seeds of Catholicism were first planted to be spread across the world. Although we visit numerous sites in this holy and historic region, daily Mass and time for prayerful reflection are important parts of each day’s experience.
