CANCELED Holy Land Retreat 2020 with Sr. Barbara Reid, OP, and Fr. Leslie Hoppe, OFM

June 25, 2020 @ 8:00 AM - July 06, 2020 @ 5:00 PM

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic CTU has canceled or postponed all events. This event has been canceled.

This retreat experience is for those who wish to reflect on the Scriptures while viewing the biblical landscape. With the guidance of Fr. Leslie Hoppe, OFM and Sr. Barbara Reid, OP, who have led retreats and study tours in the Holy Land for more than 30 years, participants will learn about the biblical significance of the site as well as its history and archaeology. There will be common prayer each day, including Eucharistic liturgies at many of the sites, and times of quiet reflection.



Trip applications must be completed online by February 28, 2020. $400 non-refundable deposit is due with application. Space is limited. Early application submissions are encouraged.

Retreat cost is $4,250 per person and includes roundtrip airfare from Chicago, double-occupancy accommodations, entrance fees, gratuities, retreat presentations, ground transportation, and breakfast and supper each day. Participants are responsible for all other expenses incurred and must be in good health and able to walk unassisted on uneven ground for at least one mile, as the retreat requires daily hikes. Single-room: additional $895. Land portion only: $2,850.
