Saint Lazare Holy Land is a charitable organization, a branch of the international Christian ecumenical Military and Hospitaller Order of Saint Lazarus of Jerusalem, with roots going back to the 4th century in Jerusalem. Green Pilgrimage is within Saint Lazare Holy Land’s core values. Saint Lazare Holy Land works to raise public awareness regarding accessibility, sustainability and mutual respect during pilgrimage journeys and upon arrival at holy cities and sites around the world, currently focusing on Jerusalem and the Holy Land.
In 2013 Saint Lazare Holy Land and the Green Pilgrim Jerusalem initiative joined forces. As a result Saint Lazare has initiated different projects under the name of “Green Pilgrimage” and has focused more intensively on promoting the “Green Pilgrimage” concept in Jerusalem and throughout Holy Land.
