As he was walking by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew……he said to them: “Come after me and I will make you fishers of people. (Mt. 18-19)

Called also Lake of Tiberias, the Kinnereth, the Kinar, Ginessareth (the Greek name). It lies within the great Jordan Valley depression, alimented by the water of River Jordan and other small rivers and tributaries. It is and it has been the life vain of Lower Galilee that gave jobs to its inhabitants in fishing and agriculture. Herods Antipas built his new capital Tiberias attracted by the beauty of the lake and its calm waters.
Jesus found in this region the proper place to start his ministry, first by choosing his first disciples and then by dwelling in a city near its shores.

Our programs include a boat ride across the Sea of Galilee so that you can see with the eyes of the Lord the same scenes, places and cities that He Himself saw.

The man will show you a large upper room furnished with couches. Make the preparations there. They set off and found everything as he had told them and prepared the Passover. (Lk. 22,12-13)

This is the part of the house He chose to share the last dinner with his disciples. This time it was different because it was a farewell dinner. First Christians knew that house and the room and venerated the place since the first years of Christianity. Churches and Sanctuaries were built in memory of this event.
Step up and see the place where the Lord had constituted the Eucharist and where he gave his disciples the example of being their master by washing their feet. This is the place where they gathered after the Ascension of the Lord. The place where they elected Matthias instead of Judas and the place where they received the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost. This is the place where the Mother Church of Jerusalem was founded. So step out from this room and, as the disciples did, preach loudly the world of the Lord with no fear.
