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.

Attention Pilgrims

 

We intend to walk this year!

Planning for this year's walk Saturday December 10th, 2022 is underway.

 

We have not yet decided on having the light supper at the end.

We have made a change in the route in 2022:

Please see the updated map below.

 

We are requiring face masks for the bus.
