10 Days in the Holy Land 2018-Trip Sold Out! Waiting List
Feb 13 - Feb 22
The interest in the trip to the Holy Land with Fr. Jess and the Deacons at Our Lady of Joy was swift and enthusiastic! The trip is now sold out, but a waiting list has been created for those who are still interested in visiting the many historic religious sites in Nazareth, Bethlehem, Jerusalem and more.
The renovation of the church is well underway and on track! Mass will be celebrated in the Hall until October 1.
For your safety during the renovation, the church will be off limits to everyone except for the construction crew. Out of respect for the workers, we appreciate your understanding and support.
