At Guiding Star we recognise the personal importance of a Pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We realise it is not a regular sightseeing tour, so for every group of Pilgrims we strive to provide the right elements needed to make a Holy Land Pilgrimage a powerful experience. We draw on the great Pilgrimage traditions that evolved over centuries. We know that Pilgrimage is an act of faith and plan each trip around that principle. We provide a variety of itineraries designed to make your trip a Pilgrimage rather than a tour. Below are some examples of the features we offer:
We are able to provide a Catholic guide in the Holy Land for pilgrim groups. Catholic guides can share their faith, reverence for the Holy places and experience in a way that makes a Pilgrimage a spiritual experience that cannot be matched. To them the Churches and Holy places are not museums or tourist sites; they are living Churches where they grew up practising their faith with their families and communities. They know that the modern day pilgrims are not tourists, but the latest in a long line of visitors with a spiritual purpose who are continuing a tradition that is hundreds of years old.
The priest leading the Pilgrimage will have the opportunity to give a Mass on every day in the Holy Land. We take the time to book each Mass in the best possible location and at a suitable time. We believe that every group should have the opportunity to attend High Mass at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at the Tomb of Christ.
We carefully design each itinerary to make sure that each day of the Pilgrimage unfolds as a personal experience and not just a tour.
