It always amazes us when people who would visit Chicago, or St. Louis will claim that Israel is unsafe

I don't know anyone who's afraid afraid to fly into Chicago to see the sights or visit friends.

Comments & Testimonials
I want to thank you and Janet for the trip of my lifetime. I can really feel that I grew in my faith as a result of this pilgrimage. The gospels are more meaningful since I can now recognize the sites mentioned. I am more focussed on Jesus during the mass and my mind wanders less. Your talks were very inspiring and educational. Janet did a wonderful job with the group helping all of the time. Thank you again Steve. I will recommend your trip to others. Kevin Reidy
