Our World
(from Catholic Near East July – August 2000)

Posted: 01 Jul 2000

Mass at Our Lady of Guadalupe Church in the Palestinian village of Bir Zeit was a highlight of a pilgrimage to the Holy Land by a group of Spanish-speaking pilgrims.

Led by Msgr. Robert L. Stern, Secretary General, the pilgrims visited the Basilica of the Annunciation, the Garden of Gethsemane, the Basilica of the Holy Sepulchre and other holy places. They also visited such CNEWA-funded institutions as Bethlehem University. The Northeast Catholic Hispanic Center sponsored the week-long pilgrimage from 22 May to 2 June.
