The Footsteps of Jesus course, which lasts for 10 days, invites participants to become pilgrims who follow the journey that Jesus and his first disciples made through the Holy Land. There are several iterations of this program. Its focus is more devotional than the longer Palestine of Jesus course, while still covering all the major sites.
Seeking the Messiah: Advent Hope
This course, new to St. George’s College in 2020, is designed around the framework of the Footsteps of Jesus course, but with a special emphasis on the season of Advent and the biblical narratives of expectation, hope, and fulfilment. The study pilgrimage will build in greater opportunities for worship, reflection, and spiritual conversation within the pilgrim and staff fellowship and will explore how other Christian communities in Jerusalem are experiencing Advent through liturgy and the arts.
Those who are responsible for the designing of liturgies or who are spiritual directors, or those who wish for a pilgrimage that visits the Christian holy sites but with emphasis on greater reflection and more opportunities for individual and corporate prayer will find this course especially fulfilling.
