Dear Pilgrims,

Blessings from Jerusalem, Land of the Holy One.

St George’s College is a place for short-term pilgrimages, study, interfaith conversation and reconciliation. Our programs weave together time at sacred sites within the land, daily worship with the living stones, and reflective conversation shared during the fellowship of community meals. People from all over the world join our programs and such a rich tapestry of personal stories blesses us.

On behalf of the St. George’s College, we welcome you to our community. Your faith will be deepened and your lives transformed by the Grace-filled richness of encountering the Fifth Gospel, the land of the Bible, with us.

Welcome to the Community of St. George’s College

Justice, Peace and Reconciliation
Our context in Palestine and Israel provides a challenge to serve as agents of justice, reconciliation and peace. The sacred Scriptures of the three great religions with deep roots in this land provide resources for reconciliation as well as texts that have been appropriated to justify conflict and reinforce suspicion. St George’s College works with other local organisations to promote interfaith engagement, to seek religious resources for justice and peace, and to promote reconciliation.
