Harriet Tubman Pilgrimage of Courage

October 23, 2015 @ 4:30 pm - October 24, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Join us for an overnight pilgrimage to Maryland’s Eastern Shore to explore the life and faith of Harriet Tubman. Known as the ‘Moses of her people,’ her spirit and legacy transcend time, challenging us to strive for justice and freedom. Accompanying us will be noted storyteller Janice Curtis Greene.

As a community of diverse pilgrims, we will visit sites that empowered Harriet Tubman to lead enslaved people to freedom in the face of tremendous danger. We will contemplate the relationships and sanctuaries that formed the Underground Railroad, and we’ll reflect on how Harriet’s story intersects with our stories in the ongoing journey to freedom.

Friday, Oct. 23, 4:30 p.m. – Saturday, Oct. 24, 5 p.m.

Cost: $185 includes overnight accommodations in a simple dorm-style retreat house, three meals (Friday dinner, Saturday breakfast and lunch), bus transportation to sites on Saturday, fees and pilgrimage materials. (Note: There are no private rooms.)

Register now! Registration and $185 fee is now due Friday, October 16.

Pilgrimage begins and ends at Camp Pecometh, Centreville, MD. Limit: 20

Pilgrimage leaders: Karen Gilliss, Karen Wright
