• Reports on March 26 say that five elderly Israelis have died of the coronavirus.

  • Various other travel and religious restrictions are in effect; most of public transportation is still in motion, and circulation for essential business is permitted. 

  • If we judge the coronavirus serious enough to cancel a trip, we'll cross that bridge when we get there.

  • If you don't want to take the risk of planning on a trip, we understand. 

  • Your initial deposit is non-refundable. We encourage you to continue payments. The rest will be 90% refundable if you cancel, 95% if we cancel. Or your payments can be fully transferred to a different trip option.

  • Like any community or ministry in the Holy Land, we are used to the constant possibility of cancellations due to changes in the security situation, due to the fear of changes in the situation, or due to changes in the perception of the situation. We cope with this by our trust in the Lord and by our focus on concrete tasks and local relationships. We encourage you to do the same! We also stay attentive to the latest facts and counsels, so don't hesitate to ask for updates from our perspective.

  • A time of pilgrimage to Lourdes, Lisieux, or especially to the Holy Land is such a grace. It is worth a certain risk! Moreover, one of our goals is to help young people learn to make decisions and carry on in life with confidence and trust and without anxiety, stress, or regrets. We can take steps forward in the light of the Lord, and if you or we decide, at some point to cancel, we'll all lose some time and money, but let's not lose our peace!
