Arrived Tired but Excited

by Steve Ray on October 3, 2009

The plane touched down at 2:45 PM and tired but excited pilgrims stepped off the plane and their feet touched the land of Israel. A few came on different flights from other parts of the country but most were from Batavia Illinois with their beloved Msgr. Dan Deutsch. Watch the video to see the story of their first day in the Holy Land.

You guys look great! Hey, Fr. Barr, He cut off your head on the you tube video so I did not see if you had found your FBI cap or not.

I am going to watch you every day. How exciting.

Please be informational on the you tubes. The weather looks great as well.
