Day 7 - The Lakeside Ministry

We began our visits at Tabgha which commemorates the feeding of the 5,000. We then visited the chapel at Mensa Christi with some time on the beach where Jesus cooked breakfast for the disciples. After that we visited Capernaum. We then went up to the convent on the Mount of the Beatitudes where we celebrated mass. Mass was followed by a great lunch which included St. Peter's fish. We had time for a quite stroll around the garden and shop of the Monastery before we made our way down to the Sea of Galilee for our boat ride. The boat ride was interesting to say the least as we experienced rain, hail, wind, sunshine, a beautiful rainbow, prayers and a hymn.
