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.
Interested in helping us plan the next peace walk? Join our next planning meeting on Zoom on Tuesday January 9 at 7pm.
Pilgrimage participants meet at the parking lot at
529 E. Broad Street, Bethlehem before 10:45 AM.
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.
