​"Pilgrims return home as new people. Changed by their journeys, they change the world where they live."*


Mennonite Mission Network invites you and your congregation or group on pilgrimages that explore what God is doing to bring about justice and peace in the world and ways in which we can participate in such movements. Mission Network invites your Sunday School class, youth group and friends to join us as we learn together how to walk in solidarity and celebration of life. 

Pilgrimages assume a different posture.

The idea of a pilgrimage has a strong foundation within Christian scriptures. In addition to numerous physical journeys and trials, fifteen of the Psalms were written specifically about pilgrimage to Jerusalem (Psalm 120-134). 

"Pilgrims are slowly confronted by a different world that begins to interrupt "their own."*


*From The Reconciling All Things" by Emmanuel Katongole and Chris Rice, 2008.
