Sabeel’s Annual Clergy Trip To Celebrate Easter

For Sabeel’s annual clergy trip, 20 clergy and their spouses met in Jericho to give their Easter greetings and network among each other. This year Sabeel took them to the new Russian museum where they toured excavation projects and learned about the history of how the Russian community came to the Holy Land. They were inspired by seeing pictures of Russians walking to the Holy Land with no shoes, carrying sometimes only their cooking supplies on their backs just to be able to pray there. It was an educational and ecumenical day that brought together clergy representing several denominations– the Syrian Orthodox, Franciscan, Greek Orthodox, Greek Catholic and Baptists.
