“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail”

– Ralph Waldo Emerson
Book Now

Join Monsignor Frank McNamee (Rector of Christ the King) and  Monsignor Joe Corbett (Pastor of Saint Jude the Apostle) on a special pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

A visit to the Holy Land is the experience of a lifetime – the opportunity to feel the events of Jesus’ life. Walk in the places He walked, pray in the places He preached and experience the feeling of inner peace and tranquility. Msgr Joe and Msgr Frank will lead us on a spiritual journey as we travel the region of Galilee and Jerusalem, visiting many sites of importance to Catholics. We'll also explore the country of Israel, experiencing a float in the Dead Sea, viewing the Golan Heights, and touring the Israel Museum.

There are alternate group air flight arrangements, scheduled at similar times as the United flights, available on Delta for an additional cost. Group air contracts include some restrictions: Due to the airlines’ reduced capacity and restrictive group reservation terms, group air reservations are often difficult to coordinate. The number of connections, length of layovers, and all conditions surrounding air travel cannot be guaranteed and may change before departure. Accordingly, if you require specific air travel needs and are not flexible concerning group air travel, you may wish to consider purchasing a Land-Only package and secure your own preferred air arrangements. Please note that group seats are assigned “at the discretion of the airline”, although every effort will be made to fulfill requests, SPECIFIC SEAT ASSIGNMENTS CANNOT AND WILL NOT BE GUARANTEED. If you require specific seats, Recess 4 Grownups, LLC suggests you book the tour package as “land only” and arrange your own air. In regard to United mileage or Delta Skymiles, it is common for carriers to give partial or no credit for group flights. It is important to give your frequent flyer number at time of final payment to make sure any eligible miles will be recorded. Group air is economy class and is not upgradable to first class, business, economy plus, etc. After ticketing, approximately three months prior to travel, purchase of economy plus upgrades are permitted subject to availability. To travel with an upgrade, you must choose "Land Only" and book independent air. Checked baggage fees are not included in this tour package price. Most airlines charge fees ranging from free to $75 per bag one way. Checked baggage is limited to one bag per person. Details of Checked baggage and Carry On Luggage allowances will be in your final travel documents. Baggage is at owner’s risk throughout the tour.

         

        Land Only: Those electing to make their own air arrangements will travel "Land Only". In this case, you must notify Recess 4 Grownups no less than 60 days before departure, be responsible for meeting the group at a specified location and time on the tour. Land only passengers are responsible for arranging and the cost of transfers to and from the airport. Wait until you have received confirmation of tour reservation before making flight arrangements. The timing of tour arrangements on arrival and departure days will be made based on the group air flights, and will be adjusted if the group air flights times are changed by the airline; this may result in a change of location and time for ‘Land Only’ participants to meet the group.
