Holy Land Pilgrimage, July 2017

The Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London
Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
03-12 July 2017

From 03-12 July 2017, 21 members of the congregation of the Chapels Royal, HM Tower of London, made a pilgrimage to the Holy Land, walking in the steps of Jesus and seeing the landscapes that he knew. We stayed in Nazareth, Bethlehem and Jerusalem and visited many of the sites traditionally associated with events in the Old as well as the New Testament. It was for all of us a memorable experience which has deepened our knowledge and understanding of the Scriptures. You will find below a selection of the many hundreds of photographs taken by members of the group.
