The Young Adult Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands
December 17-28, 2018
The Young Adult Pilgrimage to the Holy Lands is an act of biblical and spiritual emergence. Challenges along the way stretch pilgrims spiritually, emotionally, and physically. Recollection of these challenges gives us an insight into our own human character—an inward glance at into the mysterious wrappings of creation.
The ten to twelve day trip is broken into two geographic areas. Half of the pilgrimage is spent in Nazareth, exploring the Galilee, Tiberias, the Mount of Transfiguration, the Via Mara, among many other historic and biblical sites. The remainder of the trip is spent in Jerusalem at St. George's Guest House. While in Jerusalem, the group explores the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, Dome of the Rock, Western Wall, Mount of Olives, the Judean Desert, and other exciting, fun places. Youth have an opportunity to touch every body of water in the region--swimming in the Galilee and Mediterranean, floating in the Dead Sea, or standing knee deep in the Jordan renewing their baptismal covenant.
We are in the process of taking names of young adults 18-39 years old (with a $500 deposit to secure a place) for our 3rd young adult pilgrimage in December 2018. The estimated cost is $2,500 per person, which may be offset by fundraising done by your parish and our diocesan office. This figure is subject to change as flight and ground costs fluctuate from year to year.
