Quaker Youth Pilgrimage 2014
22 Jul – 21 Aug 2014
On the 2014 Pilgrimage, a group of 16 to 18 year-olds will travel, worship and work together for a month as they explore the regions of South America where Quakers live and worship. The pilgrimage will be a month-long, from July to August 2014. Through their time together and their encounters with local Friends they will experience the diversity of Friends’ traditions, and strengthen their relationship with God.
The pilgrimage will begin in Southwestern Peru and end east of the Andes in Santa Cruz, Bolivia. There will be about 30 pilgrims (roughly 10 pilgrims from Latin American yearly meetings, 10 from other yearly meetings in the US and Canada and 10 from the Europe & Middle East Section) with 5 to 6 leaders who will share the added tasks of interpretation and translation.
Application deadlines for Europe and the Middle East are: Pilgrims, 15 November 2013 (likely to be extended, so enquire if interested after that date); Leaders, 30 September 2013. Application packs from Leo Vincent.
