    Pilgrim Testimonies

    "Israel grabbed my heart in a way I never expected. I would love to return, and stay at Hotel Caesar on the Sea of Galilee. I am so pleased with Franciscan University's pilgrimage department for sponsoring this trip. I recommend it to everyone who asks about my travels to the Holy Land and Rome." —Lucy

    Israel was like no other experience I have ever had. I just keep thinking about it and longing to return some day. –Carolyn
