AGAIN, IN ORDER NOT TO DISAPPOINT ANYONE, PLEASE HAVE YOU VACCINE VERIFICATION HANDY

 

 We have decided to go ahead with a modified witness this year because of the Covid pandemic. We think that the most important part of the event is the walking witness along route 191 from Nazareth to Bethlehem.

 

 

We are requiring facemasks and proof of vaccination for the bus and the indoor parts of the walk.

Register for this year's walk

Route (updated)
Walk the Road of Peace

 

The Pilgrimage began in 1960 

as a Christian witness for peace.
 We welcome all persons of any age to join

the Pilgrimage, symbolic of the journey of 

Mary and Joseph.


During the 10 mile trek from Nazareth 

to Bethlehem, Pennsylvania we seek to

reflect the non-violent life of Jesus Christ

and his truth of forgiving love.

 

Walk with your family and friends and 

make new friends with others

who seek a more peaceful world.
