Tiberias: the Sea of Galilee Parish

The parish of Tiberias provides regular parish activities for the small Christian flock present in an entirely Jewish city. Besides daily Mass, the community helps the faithful to live intensly the mysteries of Salvation during the important Christian celebrations of the year.

Every year on the Sunday before the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter (22nd of February) parishoners, Christians from Nazareth, religious men and women from Galilee come together to celebrate this great day of feast.

For the Christians in and around Tiberias and for the pilgrims the Church of St. Peter is a corner of the city where they can retreat in prayer and in listening to the Word of God.

Fr. Giuseppe De Nardi is the parish priest since 2010. He is a member of the Vicariate for Hebrew speaking Catholics since 2006. Besides the parish activity, Fr. Giuseppe is also responsable for the Koinonia John the Baptist in Israel.
