Rev Graham Ransom is considering organising a pilgrimage to Greece next year, to follow in the steps of St. Paul. The dates and times of this are yet to be sorted, but the trip will probably be around the end of September 2020. It will be organised through McCabe Travel, who have a great deal of experience in planning such trips.
Of the pilgrimage, they write:
Our five centre, ten day journey follows St Paul’s route from landing in the northern port of Neapolis to preaching his famous sermon introducing the unknown God in Athens. We travel the length of Greece visiting Philippi, Thessalonika, Berea, Athens and Corinth. As well as the Pauline sites, highlights include a drive up a mountain to experience a living monastery, where the sisters are always happy to discuss their monastic way of life. This is contrasted with a visit to the ancient Meteora monasteries perched on top of rock pillars. Nearby is Delphi where the Oracle was once considered the centre of the ancient world. Our theme is the expansion of the Christian church as it moved westward from Asia into Europe.
The cost will be from £1995, per person, flying from Manchester. Lunches, insurance and a single room supplement are not included in this price.
There will be some walking, especially around archaeological sites, but there will be cafes, etc to rest in as well.
