Here's what I would like you to know:
- There was not one moment when I felt unsafe during our group's trip in the Holy Land.
- Tourism/pilgrims are a major part of the economy of Israel- it is in their best interest to keep visitors safe.
- Catholic Travel Centre and their affiliate in Israel know the local climate and would never send a group into harm's way. They would either cancel the trip or amend the daily itinerary.
- Look at this photo. Young people head home from school on their own without worry or care- can we say the same in Cary, Raleigh or Durham?
So- fear is real. But know that we would never put you in jeopardy... We WILL offer you a faith adventure that may change your life! - Cathy
