Pilgrimage to the Holy Land, 2018

From the Dean:  Exciting news!  Our parishioners Joanne Blakemore and Neil Janin are offering another pilgrimage to the Holy Land in March 2018.  These are extraordinarily well-run, and have been very popular.  I will be a part of this trip, making the connections with Biblical readings and historical Christian sites.  Lucinda+

Pilgrimage to the Holy Land 2018

The American Cathedral is pleased to announce a pilgrimage to the Holy Land scheduled for 12-18 March 2018.  We will travel to Bethlehem, Taybeh and Galilee where we will visit the Church of Loaves and Fishes (Tabgha), the Mount of the Beatitudes, Capernaum, etc., and have a boat trip on the lake. The Cathedral has a companionship with The Episcopal Technological & Vocational Training Center and Arab Evangelical Episcopal School in Ramallah, and we will visit the schools and community in the West Bank. We have arranged speakers to heighten our awareness of the political, historical and cultural situation as it affects the region, Palestinian, Israeli and Christian. The cost for the trip is approximately €2000 (includes air fare, hotels, all meals, donations and tips). Please contact Joanne Blakemore at joanne.blakemore@gmail.com.
