Choral Pilgrimage

Christ Church is offering its next Choral Pilgrimage to England from July 26 through August 5, 2017. What is a Choral Pilgrimage? It is a rich musical and spiritual journey. The purpose of this pilgrimage is to hear some of the finest choirs in England sing Evensong and to explore the cathedrals, chapels, and towns in which they perform. We will attend the closing days of the 3 Choirs Festival, a 300+year musical tradition hosted by three cathedral cities, Gloucester, Hereford, and our host city, Worcester. Pilgrims seek an encounter with the holy in the glory of choral music and the spiritual sites of our Anglican heritage. It is also a time to build relationships and share stories with fellow travelers as we bond over shared meals and along England's carriage ways in our comfortable coach. Touring a cathedral or its town is not always handicapped accessible, so those who join this pilgrimage should be able to climb stairs and walk short distances.
