This is my first blog post from our Diocesan pilgrimage to the Holy Land. I will embed two videos tomorrow evening!
We left last night, delayed quite a long time, but happy to finally take off! Everyone was very tired, but in great spirits as we ate dinner en route. Some drifted off to sleep and some watched movies. After landing in Ben Gurion Airport in Tel Aviv, we located our bags and went outside to meet Iyad Qumri, our guide.
Our group arrived at St. George's Cathedral Guest House, checked in, and ate a delicious dinner of savory greens, olives, veggies, and minced lamb/beef meat balls in a mushroom-y cream sauce.
