Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

Come to the Holy Land!

Cantor Julia Waletzko and family at Church of Holy SepulchreCome and join us in the Holy Land next January 5-18! Special guest, Chris Stefanick, is coming too on his first pilgrimage to the Holy Land. We would be delighted to travel with you and show you the amazing holy sites. There is no place on earth quite like the stage of the Bible, where Jesus, Mary and the Apostles and all the saints of the Old Testament lived the most dramatic story ever! You will be blessed, inspired, make new friends, have fun and then return with memories to last a lifetime. Pilgrims tell us that they think about their experience everyday and that the readings at Mass come alive because they actually stood in many of the same places, Capernaum, Nazareth, Jerusalem, Bethlehem. Registration is open and filling up, so send in your deposit to save your spot! More details can be found here.

Big Project in the Works

Behold I Stand at the Door and Knock--Revelation 3:20We have been working for years to help people understand more about their faith through the scriptures. One missing component has been how to easily communicate God's plan of salvation to children. After adults have gone through the Great Adventure Bible Studies, many have asked, how can we pass this on to our kids? Through pilot programs and a great team of writers, Emily has launched a Kickstarter project to raise funds to make the first component in a full children's curriculum available.

It is called "Gen2Rev Storybook: A Walk through the Catholic Bible." It is a companion to the Catholic Bible that walks through the chronological story of salvation history from Genesis to Revelation in a simple format for parents and children to use. Families can read the Bible together and learn the Bible story and discover the 7 sacraments within sacred scripture as well as the mysteries of the rosary, the Creed and God's covenants. It's a critical link to taking the beautiful things of the Catholic church and pointing to their origins in sacred scripture.

The cover illustration depicts Jesus knocking at our door, ready to bring us the dinner of the eucharist!

If you can, please help make it happen! Click here to find Kickstarter project!

Special Honor!

We are looking forward to an exciting evening April 23 in Bloomington, MN because Relevant Radio (the radio station  on which Jeff hosted Morning Air) is giving him the "Christ Brings Hope" Award for his efforts in Evangelization. It is a beautiful time for us to look back on all the amazing blessings God has given us as we've tried to follow his call and reach the world for Christ. We are hoping to see many familiar faces of those who have labored with Jeff in the Catechetical Institute, the Great Adventure Bible Studies, Relevant Radio, various local parishes where Jeff has taught, fellow Holy Land pilgrims, supportive family and friends. 

This event is a fundraiser for Relevant Radio with guest speaker Fr. Rich Simon from Chicago. He's traveled with us to Israel and has been a fabulous promoter for the Great Adventure Bible Studies on his radio show, "Fr. Simon Says." Many other Relevant Radio personalities will also be present.

For those who contribute from the local archdiocese, a donor is giving matching funds designated to the local Catholic school of the donor's choice. For more information on this incentive or to register for the event, visit relevantradio.com
