Pilgrims Tour Holy Sites
Posted: 01 Jan 1993
Msgr. Stern led two separate pilgrimages through the Holy Land in late September. The first consisted of 11 members of Indias Roman Catholic hierarchy. The second included members of the Knights and Ladies of the Holy Sepulchre, a papal order whose members strive to preserve the presence of the church in the Holy Land.
The pilgrimages are part of the Associations commitment to educate religious and laity about issues of peace with justice in the Middle East and the work of the church in its hometown.
