NOTE TO FAMILY AND FRIENDS OF THESE PILGRIMS — please messages below in Comments and I’ll read them on the bus. Humor is always appreciated.

This Holy Land pilgrimage is sponsored by the Food Donation Connection which is a very marvelous organization that finds ways to collect wasted food and distribute it to the poor and hungry and those who need it. Brilliant idea!

A lot of folks had arrange their own airlines and we provided transfers to our hotel in Tiberias. The main group of about 30 arrive at Ben Gurion airport at 4:20 PM. By the time they went through passport and collected their luggage we left around 6 PM for the drive to Tiberias and our beautiful Ron Beach Hotel on the shores of the Sea of Galilee!

We settled in, had dinner and celebrated Mass with the waves splashing Right beside us. What a great place for the first Mass in the Holy Land!

About the Pilgrimage


April 2017 Holy Land Pilgrimage from Steve Ray on Vimeo.

This trip was sold out!
It was an exclusive one-bus trip for the members of the Food Donation Connection.

This Holy Land Pilgrimage is like all other Signature Footprints of God trips, known for excellent organization, leadership and teaching from pilgrimage experts, Steve and Janet Ray. For a more personal experience we limit the group to one bus to foster the closeness and intimacy you would expect of a top tier pilgrimage.

We do not put you through dinner buffet lines everyday but on three days we will take you to some of the finest restaurants with lots of local flavor and cuisine with wine and drinks provided during all dinners. We also make every effort to support the local Christians which make up only 1.5% of the population.

Bill and Sue Reighard founded Food Donation Connection in 1992 in response to the challenge of Jesus in John 6:12 to “Let Nothing be Wasted”. With this statement as its vision for the past 24 years, FDC has developed systems and technology enabling thousands of donors with surplus food to donate this food to thousands of hunger relief organizations in the US, Puerto Rico, Canada, Ireland and the UK. This trip will allow FDC to celebrate 25 years of service by visiting the site where Jesus made this request.
