In May 2023, FMA brought pilgrims to the Holy Land. During this transformative pilgrimage, participants embarked on a spiritual journey through the holy sites of Israel. The first days took them to Caesarea, Mount Carmel, Nazareth, and Cana, where they explored significant biblical locations and celebrated Mass. The following days, they explored the Sea of Galilee, visiting Tabgha, Capernaum, and Mount of the Beatitudes. The pilgrimage continued to Samaria-Sebastia, and Bethlehem, where they visited the Basilica of the Nativity and experienced the Mount of Olives. They also traveled to the Jordan River (and renewed baptismal vows), Qumran, and the Dead Sea. The final days were spent in Jerusalem, visiting the Old City, the Israel Museum and celebrated Masses at significant shrines. The journey concluded by walking the Via Dolorosa concluded by Mass at the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre. Participants returned home with cherished memories and a renewed sense of faith.
