Christmas Peace Pilgrimage 2015 36.JPG

Pilgrims pass by the luminaries at the end of our walk.

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.

Join us

Interested in helping us plan the next peace walk? Join our next planning meeting on Zoom on Tuesday January 9 at 7pm.

Buses transport pilgrims to Nazareth Moravian Church on Center Square where the Pilgrimage begins.

The Pilgrimage follows PA 191. Persons join at any point along the way. Dress appropriately for the weather; pilgrims walk in sun, wind, rain or snow for a route of about 10 miles. Support vehicles are available to pick up those who would like assistance for part of the way or a ride back to their vehicles.


Pilgrims arrive at Christ United Church of Christ, Market & Center Streets, Bethlehem, around 5:30 pm for a light supper and short closing gathering.

Spread the word!

This 60+ year tradition is an opportunity to come together and witness for peace, as friends, neighbors, families and strangers.
