Greetings Stauros Holy Land Tour BLOGG

Greetings to all and a warm welcome to those who will be following our progress to the trip to the land of the Bible. Access to the Land is a non-academic program of Bible study made accessible to persons living with physical disabilities. It is the realization of a dream by Fr. Donald Senior, CP, New Testament professor and current President of Catholic Theological Union, and Stauros U.S.A. founder, the late Fr. Flavian Dougherty, CP. In the words of Fr. Senior, “For many people with disabilities, their suffering is not their disability itself but, rather, the barriers and negative attitudes society puts in their way. We named our program ‘Access to the Land’ because we want to demonstrate that people with disabilities should have the same access to the sources of our faith as anyone else.”

Nancy Nickel and I will provide updates to keep everyone connected to our tour progress. We look forward to sharing the sights and sounds and experiences of this journey with you our readers.

We leave at 4 PM on August 16th from Newark flying to Tel Aviv. Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

May God Bless Us Everyone

Deacon Don
