Holy Land Pilgrimage – November 2020
2020 will be a special year when in addition to the 62nd annual pilgrimage of the Order to Lourdes, our Grand Hospitaller has also announced a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, the last being made in 2007.
H.M.E.H. the Grand Master will lead an International Pilgrimage to the Holy Land during the second week of November 2020. Pilgrims from Australia and New Zealand will depart on 6 November 2020.
An extension to Malta after the pilgrimage to the Holy Land is also in the works, organised by Confrere Stephen Gatt.
The Holy Land pilgrimage will be designed in collaboration with Harvest Journeys, a well-respected organiser of Catholic pilgrimages, to include five common events organised by the office of the Grand Hospitaller. They are:
