October trip has the nature of spiritual renewal and is titled " Recollection on Wheels: spiritual journey in the footsteps of our Savior."

Going on a trip to Tel Aviv, Fr. Andrew appealed to the pilgrims, saying: " We begin our journey for hope. Holy Land has always been a land of hope for Christians. The main theme of the national anthem of Israel is hope, therefore, while traveling the paths of Christ we are going to discover new horizons of hope, own horizons of faith. "

Our pilgrimage offers to deepen into this rich spiritual tradition, to participate in an exciting journey into the depths of the spirit, going along the road which Jesus of Nazareth traveled. Intensive spiritual course for modern man " Retreat on wheels: a spiritual journey in the footsteps the Savior" is combined with spectacular views of the Holy Land and the ability personally touch the reality, covered with antiquity, which carried our salvation.
