Pilgrimage Sept 2014 Chris Samuels


undefinedA pilgrimage to the Holy Land will be led by the Revd Canon Chris Samuels in the autumn. It will include visits to Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Galilee and Nazareth, and will provide an opportunity for pilgrims to meet and worship with local Christians.

The pilgrims will stay in two very well-appointed hotels, and will travel around by air-conditioned coach.

Canon Chris – an experienced leader who has worked for many years leading pilgrimages to the Middle East – will also be accompanied by an experienced local guide.

“A highlight of these pilgrimages is standing by the church at the Mount of Beatitudes looking across the Sea of Galilee, but people tell me of other memorable moments too,” said Chris, who is a former Rector of St Mary Without-the-Walls, Handbridge, Chester, and a former Honorary Canon of Chester Cathedral.

The cost of the journey is, £1,595, which includes the flights, full board and all coaching. It will take place from 8 to 18 September 2014, and will be an ecumenical pilgrimage.
