I am very excited to officially announce that Lyn Holt and I are preparing to lead an adult pilgrimage to Greece and Rome on May 3-12, 2022! This is “Walking in the Footsteps of Paul in Greece and Rome: Take 2,” since our original pilgrimage in May 2020 was canceled due to Covid-19. We decided to keep the same itinerary as last time, so if you had previously signed up, or wanted to but weren’t able to in 2020, we hope that you will consider joining us again.
Going on pilgrimage is unlike any other form of travel. We combine sightseeing with visits to holy sites, eduction around the people and events that they represent, and time for prayer, Eucharist, and reflection. Pilgrimage engages our body, mind, and spirit as we grow closer to God through our journeys. On this pilgrimage, we will learn more about Paul and his travels, as well as hear about other significant Biblical figures and stories. We will visit many of the places that we read about in the New Testament!
You may view a brochure online at st-peters.org, as well as a link to the portal set up by our travel company, Faith Journeys myfaithjourneys.com. The portal is where you can access more detailed information and register for the pilgrimage. We’ve had substantial interest in this pilgrimage and we are so excited to get to know our wonderful group of pilgrims!
If you are curious about this pilgrimage and want more information, there will be an informational meeting on August 5 at 6:00 p.m. Please mark your calendars and stay tuned to the eNews for more details about this meeting. We hope to see you there!
The Reverend Amanda C. Stephenson, Associate Rector
