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.
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. Support vehicles assist those not able to walk the entire route.
Dress appropriately for the weather; pilgrims walk in sun, wind, rain or snow. Pilgrims arrive at Christ United Church of Christ, Market & Center Streets, Bethlehem, around 5:30 pm for a short closing gathering.
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.
