2015 Holy Land Pilgrimage

The Rt. Rev. Barry Beisner, Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Northern California and the Rt. Rev. Greg Rickel, Bishop of The Episcopal Diocese of Olympia, led a pilgrimage to the Holy Land for bishops and clergy in The Episcopal Church in January 2015.

The pilgrimage began in north Israel, on the shore of the Sea of Galilee, and included such highlights as Mount Tabor, Nazareth, the Mount of Beatitudes, the Jordan River, the ancient city of Hebron and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. There were also visits to Capernaum, the Western Wall and Ramallah.

"A pilgrimage of this kind offers real opportunity for enrichment, education, fellowship and refreshment,"
said Bishop Beisner and Bishop Rickel.
