Holy Land Pilgrimages

with the Rev. Canon Mark Stanger, Diocesan and Cathedral Missioner to the Holy Land 


Next pilgrimage: January 10 - January 23, 2016

Take advantage of this exceptional opportunity to join in a pilgrimage to the Land of the Holy One, visiting the places of the birth, life, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus, as well as Jewish and Muslim holy sites, and a fascinating and informative encounter with the present-day cultures and challenges of Israel-Palestine. Our itinerary begins on January 11, and assumes that pilgrims will be traveling on January 10. 

The pilgrimage will be led by the Rev. Mark Stanger, Diocesan and Cathedral Missioner to Jerusalem and the Holy Land, along with a local Palestinian Christian licensed guide, Canon Iyad Qumri.  Preparations for pilgrimage are being managed by cathedral seminarian Anna Rossi.
