Brother Peter Damien and Father Thomas share their experiences in the Holy Land through these photos. They accompanied students from Mundelein Seminary as they visited places of the stories told in the Old and New Testaments as well as ancient monasteries and ruins. Aside from the classroom excursions, the group also visited a local orphanage. They each bought gifts to bring for the children while the children put on a Christmas pageant. Other visits included a trip to a Bedouin village and a chance to experience the wilderness in the Gaza desert.
