The St. James 5th Pilgrimage to the Holy Land is underway! Our pilgrims, led by Fr. Arakel, have spent the past few days visiting sites including Jerusalem’s Armenian Quarter and Old City, Bethlehem, the Sea of Galilee, the River Jordan, and many more. Yesterday, the group departed for the Church of the Holy Sepulchre at 3am, for the opportunity to participate in Divine Liturgy at the Tomb of Christ, with Fr. Arakel as the celebrant, and several of our group members serving as deacons. It was a memorable and moving experience for all.
