Holy Land Pilgrimage for League Members


Join Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) for the 6th annual Holy Land Pilgrimage for The Catholic Women’s League of Canada members from June 22 – July 3, 2019 in Israel and Palestine.

National Secretary-Treasurer  Janet McLean said, “I’ve gone on the pilgrimage with CNEWA a few times now, which tells you how much I find these trips enriching. Every time that I’ve gone, I find that it brings the scriptures to life again. But it’s also an opportunity to meet the people there and encourage them. It’s a fantastic trip because you are able to do these two things at once.”

Cost is $3375; including airfare from Toronto, hotel (double occupancy), bus, guide, breakfast and supper. Space is limited. Deadline is Monday, April 15, 2019. For more information, please visit Contact CNEWA Canada by phone 1-866-322-4441 or email
