Our friends at Israel21c share the historical churches where hundreds of worshippers will be celebrating Christmas Mass in the Holy Land.
Here’s the first one on the list:
Church of the Nativity, Bethlehem
Midnight Mass in the church built over the site traditionally considered the birthplace of Jesus is by far the most popular and requires pre-booking. The limited available tickets for Christmas 2017 have already been claimed. To reserve your free ticket for next year, contact Christian Information Centre, +972-(0)2-627-2697 or [email protected]
But no worries: You can still join the throngs watching Midnight Mass on large screens outside the church in Manger Square (dress warmly!). Further information: +972-(0)2-274-2440.
