Catholic Primary School teachers look forward to studying in Israel
26 June 2023
A group of Catholic primary school teachers from across the Diocese of Sale are looking forward to studying Scripture in Israel from 24 June until 9 July, 2023.
I’m very grateful be part of the Sion program and for the opportunity to travel to the Holy Land, a place not only sacred to Christians, but also those of the Jewish and Islamic faiths. I’m looking forward to visiting the holy sites and the lands in which Jesus lived, and to be then able to visualise the setting of the Scripture stories. I hope this will further enhance my understanding of Scripture and I will be able to share this with my school community.
Through the Sion Scholarship experience, my hope is to gain a deeper understanding of the Scriptures: to walk where Jesus walked, to see where Jesus lived will add a whole new context to the Gospels.
