St Albans Diocese Pilgrimages. 2016 - 17


This site provides details and booking information for the pilgrimages run by St Albans Diocese.

Since the year 2000 we have arranged many overseas pilgrimages to locations such as the Holy land, The Seven Churches of Asia in Turkey, Greece, Cappadocia, Jordan & Sinai and Santiago de Compostela, working closely with our chosen travel agent, McCabe Pilgrimages.

From the earliest days of the Christian Faith, pilgrimage has offered both the opportunity to travel to the sacred sites, and also to engage with the Christians there. The Holy Land is understandable the first choice for many who wish to travel in this way, but there are many other countries and locations where a faith-journey can be a positive and sometimes life-changing experience.

Please use this site to discover the pilgrimage journeys we are planning in the near future, and also to read more about what we have done and our basis for doing it.

A particular feature of the pilgrimages we run is that they are very well-suited to people travelling on their own, as well as for couples and families. The cost of the pilgrimages is shown in its entirety. We have worked with our travel agent McCabe Pilgrimages for over 15 years and have absolutely confidence in their capability and professionalism.  The pilgrimages are open to all and are fully ecumenical.
