Bishop Gayle E. Harris and the Rev. Debbie Phillips of Grace Church in Salem will lead a diocesan mission pilgrimage in Israel and Palestine, Nov. 24-Dec. 6, and they invite others to join them.
The latest in a series of such trips that Harris has led, it is envisioned as a mission pilgrimage, combining visits to holy sites, in Jerusalem, Bethlehem, the Jordan Valley, Nazareth, Galilee, Nablus and Ramallah, with opportunities to learn about active mission in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem through its school, health-care and peacemaking ministries.
The group will meet three times before the trip for orientation and community building.
The sign-up deadline is April 30. Estimated cost is $4,100 per person (double occupancy), with all payments due by Oct. 1.
