Holy Land Experience

A pilgrimage to the Holy Land is more than a religious tour. It is an experience of faith, a voyage to deepen one’s desire to know Christ better. It is turning to the places “in which God has chosen to ‘pitch his tent,’ among us,” as St. John Paul II said about his own pilgrimage to the Holy Land. Enter into the sacred spaces of the Annunciation of Mary. See the place of Christ’s birth. Follow the steps Simon of Cyrene took to help Christ carry his cross and of his Apostles who witnessed his first miracles. Journey with us to the land where Christ prayed, suffered, and rose from the dead.
Catholic Experiences in the Holy Land
Truly Catholic Experiences

All pilgrimages are led by Catholic priests and include daily Mass at a sacred site or church in the Holy Land. In addition, Tekton only partners with guides who are Christian/Catholic and share the sanctity of our holy Scripture.

We Plan.  You Pray.
We Plan. You Pray.

We plan it all – travel, accommodations, and two meals a day – so you can forget about the details and enjoy a transformative experience! We even help you prepare spiritually, beginning six months prior to your departure!

Safe and Secure
Safe and Secure

Rest assured that from the moment you arrive to the moment you depart, your safety is paramount. Our guides, drivers, and hotels are carefully vetted for safety and security. We never travel to areas on the U.S. State Department “alert” list.

Jerusalem is the “City of God” and “City of Peace.” With Tekton, you won’t zoom through the holy sites or be thrust on a tourist treadmill. A peaceful pace provides ample time to reflect on God’s Word and each day’s experiences.

“When I was at Calvary with my right hand touching the hole in which Jesus' cross once stood, I felt like the woman in the Bible who wanted to touch Jesus' hem to be healed.
I was that woman in tears.”

“Being in the Holy Land has strengthened my faith and given me a different perspective on the gospel stories. Now I can say, ‘I was there and felt the presence of Jesus in every step along the way.’ Everything was absolutely inspiring, and such wonderful friendships were made as we walked together!”
