Speaking on the importance of this educational journey His Eminence said, “Jerusalem has a significant role in our history. It is, indeed, the place where our Lord and Saviour lived. It is the land of the Holy Bible, and it is the crossroads of all religions”.
While the Holy Land is special for all Christians, the rich Armenian flavour in the region makes it an even more special destination for our faithful Armenian pilgrims. During the trip, participants will visit the Armenian Patriarchate of Jerusalem and meet with His Beatitude Archbishop Torkom Manoogian, Armenian Patriarch. They will also tour the Holy Sites maintained by Armenian clergy and have the experience of visiting various sacred sites and other places of interest.
