On a McCabe pilgrimage, your itinerary will include all the major places of interest from Jerusalem to the Sea of Galilee but you will see and experience much more than the places where Jesus taught and healed during His earthly ministry.
Just a few minutes drive from Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity you will find the Al-Shurooq School for the Blind, run by Helen Shehadeh, a Palestinian Christian. Helen writes: “We get some visits from pilgrim groups but I’d love more to come so that they could see the example we are trying to set of love and Christianity in this place.” In orphanages, schools, clinics, and church communities you will discover, on a McCabe pilgrimage, the Living Stones who teach and heal today.
A typical McCabe pilgrimage will be based on a single parish travelling together though sometimes parishes combine or whole dioceses go on pilgrimage. Most parties welcome people from outside of the parish who would like to join them.
Pilgrimages depart weekly during the main spring and autumn seasons.
