Join Damascus in the Holy Land on Pilgrimage with Dan & Amber, Aaron & Monica and Father Patrick Schultz

Israel | Feb 18, 2023 - Feb 27, 2023

“Lord, let your dust be upon me.” Respond with us to Jesus’ invitation to ‘Come and follow’ Him like never before, through modern-day Galilee, Nazareth, Bethlehem and Jerusalem. Together we will share daily Mass, Spirit-filled messages, and powerful prayer encounters as we walk where Jesus walked. Rather than a ‘once-in-a-lifetime’ encounter with Christ, we believe this will be a turning point for new life that endures.

Legatus – Decanting the Faith & Wines of Burgundy, France with Dr. Liz Lev

France | Apr 18, 2023 - Apr 25, 2023

Main Tour: Burgundy region - While the Burgundy region of France is renowned for its glorious wines, the Catholic origins of these exquisite terroirs are almost forgotten. From the age of Charlemagne, Benedictine tended this special soil learning how to coax the finest flavors from the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes, depending on the perfect balance of sun, wind, earth and water, until the vineyards were expropriated during the French Revolution. This very special tour explores the deep Christian roots of wine and the fruit of Christ’s first miracle, drawing together art, spirituality and a mini-course in learning to taste and appreciate some of the finest wines on Earth.

Follow the footsteps of the Benedictines at Cluny and Citeaux, and visit the shrine at Paray-le-Monial where the Sacred Heart appeared to Margaret Mary Alacoque, igniting that world-wide devotion. See some the greatest churches of the Romanesque era, the Cathedral of Autun and Vezelay, the site of Mary Magdalen’s burial. This extraordinary architectural period, with its virtuoso stone carving and powerful presence, was the Catholic church’s earliest expression of a global style. Led by art historian Liz Lev and theologian Thomas Williams on this special journey, you can enjoy their expertise as certified sommeliers!

Pre-Tour: Paris - Experience Paris with world-renowned art historian, Dr. Liz Lev. Witness the art, faith and culture come alive as she leads you through the Christian history of Paris, the architectural masterpieces and the beauty house within the Louvre Museum. Do not miss this incredible opportunity!
