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.
We intend to walk this year!
Out of compassion for our community, we are requiring N95 or equivalent face masks for the bus and indoors.
We have made a change in the route in 2022:
Please see the updated map below.
(this helps us plan!)
Spread the word!
This 60+ year tradition is an opportunity to come together and witness for peace, as friends, neighbors, families and strangers.
Please join us in this unique event and help us spread the word-- invite your community to walk for peace.
