CIC in the Service of Pilgrims and Tourists

On Monday, September 26, 2011, in the Christian Information Center in Jerusalem, members of the Episcopal Commission for Pilgrimages met with representatives of tours operators and Christian guides.
The meeting was organized on the occasion of the World Day of Tourism, on September 27, promoted by the United Nations Commission for Tourism, with the theme "Tourism as a bridge between cultures".
Mons. William Shomali, Auxiliary Bishop of Jerusalem and president of the Episcopal Commission for Pilgrimages, wanted to celebrate this moment, calling for a reflection on this particular type of religious tourism. The pilgrim is invited to share in a journey that should not only be historical or archaeological, but which should bring to life the message of the places visited.
