Members of the USCCB's 2014 peace pilgrimage to the Holy Land meet with H.B. Patriarch Fouad Twal at the Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem. The 18 bishops from the United States celebrated mass at the Patriarchate and met with leaders from the Greek Orthodox Church, Anglican Church and other Christian leaders. The peace pilgrimage occurred 3 weeks after a ceasefire of fighting between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
