Holy Land Pilgrimage Christopher Cross, KHS

Chris made his first pilgrimage to the Holy Land in 1982. On the last day of his journey, he decided to go to the Garden of Gethsemane to pray the rosary and to thank God for permitting him to make this most holy pilgrimage. In those predawn hours in the Garden of Gethsemane, Chris asked God if it was possible that he could make another trip to the Holy Land. He never dreamed that God would see fit to permit him to make fifty-five more pilgrimages! His first sixteen trips consisted of groups of priests from the United States, Canada and Europe. His itinerary was designed for priests who were going on retreat. After numerous trips to Israel, there were many priests who asked him if he would be interested in taking over groups of lay people. This was the beginning of his ministry of leading many pilgrims to the Holy Land and showing them where Jesus lived, died and rose from the dead. Chris believes that most people who travel to the Holy Land will never experience what his groups experience mentally, physically and spiritually. Several priests who had traveled to the Holy Land with other groups have said that they had never seen some of the sites that they saw with Chris and that they had never experienced a more spiritual pilgrimage. Chris has had four priests who traveled with him come up to him at the Tel Aviv Airport and tell him that they were considering leaving the priesthood until they took this trip. These pilgrimages with Mr. Cross have a life changing effect upon all those who undertake them. Chris has made over 71 pilgrims to the Holy Land and is a very experienced licensed tour guide. Chris has averaged and made 2 trips a year for the last 33 years. He is well known throughout the Holy Land both by the Franciscans and tour guides.
