Introductory Tours

These tours are open to clergy only

A McCabe introductory experience is the ideal preparation for leading your own parish or community on pilgrimage.  We have the co-operation of our travel partners to enable us to offer an exceptionally low subsidised price.  As an added incentive, the cost will be refunded if you decide to co-operate with McCabe’s on your own parish pilgrimage to the Holy Land with 16 or more people. We also offer a special price if your spouse would like to join you.

The introductory pilgrimage lasts a week with four nights at our partner hotel in Jerusalem, The Golden Walls, and three nights at our partner hotel beside the Sea of Galilee, The Ron Beach Hotel, Tiberias.  All meals including lunches are provided.  Leadership will be shared by an experienced McCabe tour leader and a local guide and we will conduct the week as a pilgrimage, incorporating readings and prayers at the sites and two group Eucharists in very special places.

During the week you will have the opportunity to meet with local Christians that we are in partnership with and at least one visit will be made to a project supported by the McCabe Educational Trust.

Two dates are currently available.

We encourage leaders to start planning their parish pilgrimage twelve to eighteen months in advance of travel.  The Introductory Experience can then be a part of the build-up and new ideas that you discover on the visit can easily be incorporated into your parish pilgrimage itinerary.
