Holy Land Pilgrimage 2020

Holy Land Pilgrimage 2020

In the first few days of their journey through the Holy Land, our St. Columba pilgrims covered significant terrain: spiritually, historically and geographically, but that didn't prepare us for the amazing experiences that lay ahead. Parishioner Lisa Battalia has graciously accepted the role of pilgrimage blogger, and has been sending amazing pictures and stories of their travels. Follow our pilgrims on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag: #ColumbaPilgrims (just cut and past this phrase into the search bar on Facebook).
