An Ecumenical Pilgrimage to India

a church in indiaIn January 2016 the Office of Ecumenical Relations for the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) will host an Ecumenical Pilgrimage to India. The Pilgrimage will explore the history of ecumenism in India, and through this exploration we will learn about the role of the church in working toward justice.

The Church in India has a rich and long history that includes: The tradition that Christianity was brought to India by Thomas approximately 50 years after Jesus’ resurrection, participating in Interfaith dialogue as a minority religion, missionizing by Anglicans and the Church of England, and Union during the founding of the World Council of Churches and India’s Independence.  Many new horizons face the church in this time and place.

This trip is not limited to Presbyterians, it is open to individuals interested in exploring ecumenism in the Indian context and reflecting on the complexities of seeking justice in a multi-faith environment. Slots are limited.

  • Who: Limited to 12 individuals.
  • When: January 2016, exact dates of the trip will be announced in the coming months.
  • Cost: Approximately $3,200
  • How: Express interest and request additional information by contacting Melissa G. Davis with the Office of Ecumenical Relations at Melissa.davis@pcusa.org or (502) 569-5037.
