On 17th March, 2016 The Salesian Youth Centre ventured on a pilgrimage cum pastoral visit to Galilee and Nazareth. The Pilgrimage was guided by Fr. Vincent Raj, the Salesian Youth Pastoral Delegate, Holy Land. There were 47 Participants from the Centre. The first visit was to Galilee; Mount of Beatitudes, Tabgha, Primacy of St. Peter and Capernahum were visited with great devotion. In the afternoon the group visited the Salesian House, Nazareth. Don Tony Zghendi gave us a warm welcome. Thereafter we had our lunch. After a break, there an Eucharistic celebration for the oratory of Bethlehem celebrated by Fr. Tony.
Shortly after, there was a football match between both the teams. Side by side there was also a mixed Basketball match between both the teams. Almost all the members were given a chance to play and most of them bagged a medal. At around 6. pm the members of Bethlehem youth centre started their journey back and reached around 8. 45 pm.
This was first ever organized tour by the Salesians to Galilee and Nazareth in large number.
God bless the Salesian Youth Pastoral work in the Holy Land.
