In this season of Advent, as we prepare to sing "Once in Royal David's City," St. David's in Wayne invites you to join us next year on a pilgrimage to that city and throughout Jerusalem, Bethlehem, Jericho and the Galilee as we retrace the steps of Jesus's life and ministry.

We'll walk down the Mount of Olives  on Palm Sunday with thousands of pilgrims from all around the world. We'll renew our baptismal vows in the Jordan River. We'll celebrate the Eucharist at sunrise overlooking Jericho and Mt. Nebo. We'll visit Christian communities in the Holy Land to see how the Gospel light radiates in a hurting world. And we'll return changed children of God for whom "Once in Royal David's City" becomes a vivid and lasting memory.

Our seasoned guides are the Rev. Matthew Dayton-Welch, a former diplomat in Jerusalem, and Canon Iyad Qumri, canon for pilgrimage at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. George in Jerusalem. Travel dates are March 28th  through April 10th , 2017.
