OCF is offering the spiritual opportunity of a lifetime: a Real Break trip to Jerusalem. Real Break Jerusalem will afford team members the opportunity to walk the footsteps of Christ, as well as visit historical and spiritually significant sites to the three Abrahamic religions. Team members will also meet the “living stones” of the Holy Land, the local Christian population.
The team will spend one week visiting Jerusalem, the Galilee area (Nazareth, Cana, Mt. Tabor), Bethlehem, Beit Sahour and Jericho (the oldest city in the world).
Pilgrimages will be made to:
- Nazareth, the site of the Annunciation and the home of Mary
- Bethlehem, the site of the Nativity of our Lord
- Jordan River, the site of the Epiphany
- Jericho, the location of the Mount of Temptation
- Cana, the site of Christ’s first miracle
- Sebastia, site of the beheading of St. John the Baptist
- Jacob’s well, site of our Lord’s conversation with St. Photini (the Samaritan at the well)
- Mt. Tabor, the site of the Transfiguration
- Capernaum and surrounding areas, where Jesus and his apostles spent most of their time
- Gethsemane, the site of Christ’s betrayal and the location of the Monastery of St. Mary Magdalene
- Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, the site of our Lord’s crucifixion and resurrection
- Mount of Olives, the site of our Lord’s Ascension
- Tomb of the Virgin Mary
