A Journey of Peace and Reconciliation | From $1085 per person
Holy Trinity Pilgrimage Covenant
Pilgrimage at Holy Trinity means joining a community of fellow travelers on an inward journey of faith and an outward journey into the sacred places in the world. It is a journey of transformation meant to pull us out of our everyday routines and duties so that we may find ourselves put onto the paths of Christians past and present who have sought to be nearer to God in prayer, in purpose and in spirit.
As pilgrims we seek to walk in love with God and with one another, to worship in community, and to seek God’s will for each of us as beloved members of God’s creation. Because community is so central to our faith, we ask each pilgrim to commit to one another in the following ways:
- To participate in formation activities and community building opportunities such as walks, dinners, and educational meetings.
- To support others in their journeys through prayer, encouragement, sacred listening, and presence.
- To welcome the opportunities for growth and adventure whether exhilarating or deeply challenging.
- To recognize the gifts each person brings to the journey.
- To stay current in all necessary information, documents, payments and communication.
As a new or returning member of the pilgrimage community, I commit myself to my fellow travelers and to the journey that lies before me.
Pilgrimage is a powerful spiritual undertaking and the opportunity to draw closer to God, to old and new friends and to oneself. Welcome to the journey!
