Domus Galilaeae

​Domus Galilaeae was founded by the Neo-Catechumenal Way in the 1960s to lead people to understand Christianity the way the first Christians did, as adults.

Visitors who enter the Domus Galilaeae center, atop the Mount of Beatitudes overlooking the Sea of Galilee, can immediately feel the power of the inscription in the bright and airy lobby: “The Lord was waiting for you on this mountain.”

Domus Galilaeae was founded by the Neo-Catechumenal Way, a movement established in the 1960s to lead people to understand Christianity the way the first Christians did, as adults.

The new center, where the movement’s members stay on a week-long Holy Land tour following study and spiritual preparation, is rich in symbolism. The chapel has a magnificent painting by the movement’s founder, Kiko Argüello, combining Eastern and Western Christian symbols and paying homage to the Church’s Jewish roots.

The uniquely designed library, specializing in books about the Sermon on the Mount, has a Torah scroll as its centerpiece.

 

Domus Galilaeae invites visitors of all denominations to tour the center and learn more about the movement.
