Capstone: Following in Celtic Footsteps—
A Pilgrimage to Iona & Ancient Missions of Britain
August 25 though September 5, 2020
Led by The Very Rev. Steven l. Thomason & The Rev. Cristi Chapman, and facilitated by Lightline Pilgrimages, LLC.
The shape of this 11-day trip is contemplative and communal, drawing on the ancient wisdom of Celtic spirituality and the monastic rhythms of worship, prayer, and life in community, while also breathing in the serene beauty of the landscape. We will begin the journey with three days amid the “thin places” of Iona, then make our way to visit sacred sites in Whitby, Jarrow, and the Rievaulx Abbey. Our itinerary will take us to magnificent Durham Cathedral and St. Cuthbert’s Shrine. Inspiration along our journey will draw on the lives of early saints like Columba, Aidan and Bede as well as writings by modern spiritualists like John Phillip Newell, John O’Donohue and Esther de Waal. There will be two pre-pilgrimage gatherings for those who make the trip. Space is limited. A deposit will be required to hold your place.
Cost to be finalized in Fall 2019 (based on dollar/pound conversion).
