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

Blessed to be in the Holy Land

Our annual January pilgrimage has come to a close. It's amazing how quickly the days fly by, but what's more amazing is all the wonderful fellow pilgrims who share each of the exciting moments with us from the Mt. of Beatitudes to the Via Dolorosa. We are grateful beyond words for the opportunity to visit the holy sites in the Holy Land with pilgrims eager to grow closer to Christ through the shared experience.

In Memory of Fr. Michael Scanlan, TOR

Fr. Scanlan and Jeff at St. Peter Primacy in GalileeFrom my heart at the passing of Fr. Michael Scanlan.

At a moment of great vulnerability, leaving my protestant pastorate and returning to the Catholic Church, God gave me a Father to greet me and guide me back home. Father Scanlan, along with Bishop Paul Dudley teamed up to give me the guidance, wisdom and encouragement to make the move. Not only did Father Scanlan encourage me in my first months back in the Church, but he quietly made it possible for me financially to study at Steubenville as he created a scholarship for me. For the first two years after returning back to the Church, Fr. Scanlan continually reminded me that I was not alone and that he would stand with me during the transition. I owe so much to this dear man of God. I really don’t know what I would have done without him. Even as a protestant pastor, I followed him, admired him and learned much. I never new that one day he would guide me with his wisdom through the toughest transition of my life.

As I got to know Father throughout the years, we were able to share pilgrimages together. I especially remember going to the Holy Land with him. In the early hours of the desert morning he challenged me to a race to the top of Mt. Sinai. He won! Now, he has truly won as he is being embraced at the summit of all summits, the beatific vision.

I love you Father Michael and I truly want to emulate your walk with Christ. I owe you much! Rest in peace!
