Recently we have let you know that there will be a Holy Land Pilgrimage from May 10th to May 23rd, 2015 which will include the 2015 Pax Christi International World Assembly in Bethlehem from the evening of May 13th to the morning of May 17.  
The main deadline to register for this pilgrimage is Sunday, January 25th. There will be a limited number of additional spots reserved at that time for late registrants but these will be filled on a first come, first serve basis. So please register by January 25th! If you are not able to do so by that time for some reason but you are still strongly considering taking this trip, please contact Bob Cooke at cookerh1251@gmail.com by 1/25 to let him know what your situation is.

The price of the trip, $3990, includes airfare from and to Dulles Airport and Tel Aviv; all meals, lodging and other expenses, including most tips (tips for our bus driver and guide are additional); and all registration and other fees associated with the PCI World Assembly. Transportation to and from Dulles Airport in northern VA is also additional. 


At the Pax Christi International World Assembly, you will meet Pax Christi leaders from all over the world and hear about the underlying causes of injustices in their countries and how they are similar (and different) from the challenges to justice and peace faced by Palestinians. At this World Assembly and all during the pilgrimage, you will meet with Christian and Muslim Palestinians and Israeli Jews working for peace and justice via nonviolent means.


You will be also visiting many of the places where Jesus and his disciples walked and lived.


We hope you will be able to join us for this unique trip to the Holy Land this May. I know you will have questions about the trip that we will be glad to answer. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the trip, please contact Bob Cooke at cookerh1251@gmail.com.


Please send in the registration form (click here to download the form) and deposit check for $300 as soon as possible so it arrives at HCEF no later than January 25th to make sure you have a place on this pilgrimage. To the degree space is available, registrations will be accepted after January 25th and until March 20th.

In Christ's peace,
