Saxum | A Project in the Holy Land

Located 15km from Jerusalem, Saxum aims to offer a place where people from all over the world can feel at home in the Holy Land and can obtain the spiritual means and essential instruction and resources to enter more deeply into the Gospels, preparing them for a deeply personal and transformative encounter with Jesus Christ.



Saxum is a two-fold project:

Saxum Conference Center: A place for spiritual retreats and conferences inspired by the teachings of Saint Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei, where faithful from all over the world who desire a renewed encounter with Jesus Christ and the Gospels can experience a new conversion and deepen their desire for holiness and evangelization.

Saxum Multimedia Resource Center: This is an orientation and information center for tour guides and visitors to the Holy Land. The center will offer interactive and multimedia resources that will highlight the Christian heritage and the Jewish roots of the faith. Its aim is to provide to people of different religions a good foundation for visiting and understanding the holy sites.

Saxum is a project of Association for Cultural Interchange in collaboration with Saxum Foundation.
