Pilgrimage to Northern England
In summer of 2018 our faith journey will continue, this time to Northern England. The Reverend Justin Ivatts will be leading a group August 4–11, continuing our quest to discover our religious identity as Anglicans by engaging with sacred sites in England that help to tell the story of Anglicanism. We will visit sites to include York Minster, Durham Cathedral, Whitby Abbey (including a train ride with lunch on board), The Holy Island of Lindisfarne and many more. Learn more HERE.
