Passages for Catholic Students

Experience Your Catholic Faith In Israel

The Experience

According to Dynamic Catholic, 85% of Catholic young adults leave their faith during college.  

Students need an experience that anchors them during this time in their lives when they are most likely to abandon their faith. That’s where we come in.  

A pilgrimage to Israel with Passages is a catalyst for deep and permanent faith formation.

Students follow in the footsteps of Jesus, Mary and the first disciples— and they tangibly connect with the ancient roots of Catholicism.

We’ve already taken over 10k students to the Holy Land, and we designed our itinerary with you and your students in mind. Our expert guides ensure that Catholic sites hold deep meaning for you and your students.

 

The results speak for themselves:

90% of students say they have a deeper connection to their faith.

99% of students say they are more knowledgeable about the early history of Christianity.

95% of students say they are now equipped to discuss the complexity of Israel in conversation with others.

99% of students say they are more knowledgeable about biblical geography and archeology.

So, what are you waiting for? Join us on a faith-defining journey to Israel.
