Church of the Nativity was the first stop on day four, where our pilgrims celebrated Mass. Following Mass a visit to Bethlehem University to see the work of the Church in education for young people of the Holy Land, and then a drive to the shepherd’s fields to visit the church. The day concluded with a drive to the Aida refugee camp to visit the Lagee youth Centre and learn about life in the refugee camp and what a difference this centre makes to the lives of the young people.
