This is a charitable organization whose goal is to support the Christians in the Holy Land and prevent them from leaving Jordan, Palestine and Israel through the use of Christian-owned businesses. It is also an opportunity for American pilgrims, especially American Catholics, to learn more about the plight of Christians in the Holy Land and also to meet Catholics who live there. We also want to educate Americans about the Christians in the Holy Land. Every pilgrimage brings charitable goods to the Holy Land, whether it be school bags filled with school supplies for needy children in Catholic schools or gastric tubes for a hospital for disabled Palestinian and Israeli children. Any funds beyond costs are used to support Catholic schools and other Catholic charities in the Holy Land.
