PILGRIMAGE AND RELIGIOUS HERITAGE

 

For centuries, Christians, Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and members of other religious communities have made pilgrimages to holy sites as a way to deepen faith and renew themselves.

The experience of travelling together to places of great historical and religious significance is transformative. Participants return with a new sense of their place in a historical tradition, a renewed commitment to their local faith and local congregation, stronger bonds with fellow sojourners, and a great understanding of other people and traditions.

 

 

 

Visionary pastoral leaders organize pilgrimages and faith heritage travel programs to make religious history come to life, make tangible the formative events of their faith heritage, and shed new light on contemporary religious practice.

 

PROGRAM IDEAS INCLUDE

Pilgrimages to sacred sites and lands

Journeys to explore the life, times and vision of saints or historical leaders

Ecumenical and interfaith programs to places where religious traditions intersect

Young adult and youth pilgrimages
