In the footsteps of St.Paul

per person

St.Paul was the first Christian to set foot on Malta and it changed the course of nation’s history. Today Malta has the highest ratio of baptised Roman Catholics to population in the world with over 95% claiming Catholicism as their faith. With more than 365 churches, and many times that number of chapels, spread around the Maltese archipelago, the islands are an open museum of the Christian faith. This enriching and engaging faith-based pilgrimage gives you the opportunity to follow in St. Paul’s footsteps both physically and spiritually.

The Apostle’s unplanned visit to Malta, on his way from the Holy Land to Rome, would forever change this Island Nation into an enduring beacon of Christian faith. To walk in the very footsteps of this treasured religious history, in the places where scripture unfolded, is an inspiring experience that is enhanced when shared with others.

‘’But Paul shook off the snake into the fire and was unharmed. The people waited for him to swell up or suddenly drop dead. But when they had waited a long time and saw that he wasn’t harmed, they changed their minds and decided he was a god.’’
