SAXUM, A NEW PILGRIMAGE CENTER IN THE HOLY LAND
A trip to the Holy Land is a unique opportunity. To make the most of the pilgrimage, it is important to combine visits to the holy sites with times of reflection, prayer and study.
For this purpose, the construction of Saxum in the Holy Land has been launched. Named in memory of Blessed Alvaro del Portillo, and promoted by Saxum FoundationThis is a center that will be open to the public in general and to the general public in particular....The center will host various activities: retreats, pilgrimages, spiritual retreats and formation courses.
The objective is to offer a deeper encounter with Christ to many people. Saxum also wants to become an instrument of peace and unity in that region of the world, promoting the understanding of all peoples.
Construction began in 2013. Construction is scheduled for completion in June 2016.
