Pilgrimage is an aspect of every program at St George’s College, but some programs focus on pilgrimage. Our pilgrimage programs vary between 8 and 14 days, and we provide a unique combination of features that makes our pilgrimage programs distinctive and transformative. These programs are ideal for parish and diocesan pilgrimage programs.
