Our Scripture Study Week program, which includes a week-long pilgrimage to the Holy Land, is designed for young adults in their 20s to fall in love with Scripture by immersing themselves in the study of the Sacred Scriptures, pilgrimage to Sacred Biblical sites, and shared theological reflection with a small faith community.
