As part of its GIFT (“Growing in Faith Formation”) program, St. Stanislaus Parish in Lansdale will offer a virtual tour of the Holy Land on Tuesday, Jan. 8 at 7 p.m. in the parish center’s lobby meeting room.
Deacon Tony Bellitto will share images of and reflections on his pilgrimage to Israel, enabling attendees to virtually visit the site of Christ’s crucifixion and the empty tomb, the Garden of Gethsemane, and the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem, the place of Jesus’ birth in Bethlehem, the Baptism site in the Jordan River, Peter’s house in Capernaum, the site of the first miracle at Cana, the Sea of Galilee, the Mount of Beatitudes, Caesarea Philippi, and the site of the Annunciation in Nazareth, as well as Jericho and the Dead Sea. Bible scenes will come to life, allowing participants to enter more deeply into the Gospel narrative.
For more information, contact the parish center at 215-855-3133.
