Holy Land Commissariat Malta


We are Franciscan friars with the mission of spreading the message of the Gospel which was born in the Holy Land, the Land of the Bible, the Land of Jesus. This website of the Holy Land Commissariat in Malta is your link to discover the beauty of going to the Holy Land. The Franciscan friars, who have been living in the Holy Land for over 800 years are the expert guides for all Christian pilgrims who would like to visit the Holy Sites.

For hundreds of years Maltese Franciscans have been missionaries to the Holy Land and have accompanied pilgrims and preached about the Land of Jesus. Do join us to make this unique experience of a virtual tour to the Holy Land, with the intention of making it all come true with the help of the Franciscan Holy Land Commissariat.

Do you want to visit the Holy Land? Do you want to further your Biblical formation? Are you interested in helping the mission of the Franciscans in the Holy Land? Do you want to keep updated with the latest news from the Holy Land?  If so, this is the website where you can find the answers.
