Pilgrimage at Calvary ~ St. George's

Here at the Parish of Calvary ~ St. George's we believe pilgrimage is a fantastic way to engage your faith. Whether it's a devotional trip to a historic holy site, or a long trek to a sacred location, pilgrimage lets us embody our callings as Christians;  creatures on a journey to a destination, in need of God's grace everyday. 

In August of 2018, pilgrims from the parish journeyed along the Camino de Santiago. Find out more by listening to our latest podcast "Pilgrim’s Podcast, Tales From The Path."

Holy Land Pilgrimage; March 16-28, 2019

We depart from Calvary Church on Saturday, March 16 and return on Thursday, March 28.  Our guide in the Holy Land is Mr. Iyad Qumri, a Palestinian Christian and a wonderful friend.

Accommodations: In Jerusalem, we stay at the guest house of St. George’s Anglican Cathedral, located a few blocks from the Old City. It is a lovely, quiet oasis, with double and single rooms - private baths, heat and air conditioning.  In Nazareth, we stay at the guest house of the Sisters of Nazareth.  The rooms are simpler - but clean, gracious and climate controlled.
