United Kingdom

The history and great cathedrals of the United Kingdom are deeply tied to The Episcopal Church. From the grandeur of buildings like Canterbury Cathedral, York Minster, King’s College Chapel and Westminster Abbey, we glimpse into the very foundations of our faith tradition. We are bound by the worldwide Anglican Communion, with its beautiful liturgy and tradition.

 What better way to learn more about the history of our faith than to visit the great cathedrals of England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales. Walking in the footsteps of such great figures as Saints Julian of Norwich, Patrick, Columba and Augustin, we open new experiences to learn as much about our past as we may learn of ourselves.

Pilgrimage to Ireland and Scotland
Dublin / Wicklow / Glendalough / Newgrange / Down / Armagh / Belfast / Isles of Mull & Iona / Stirling Castle / Edinburgh / Lindisfarne

 

Day One:
  • Our journey begins with an overnight flight, with full meal/beverage service and in-flight entertainment, to Dublin, Ireland.
Day Two:
  • Welcome to vibrant, soulful Dublin! Upon arrival in “Dublin’s Fair City,” we meet our Faith Journeys Tour Manager and transfer by motorcoach for a panoramic Dublin City Tour. Our first stop will be Christ Church Cathedral, site of Dublin’s first wooden church, built by King Sitric Silkenbeard (first Christian Viking King of Dublin in 1038). The present Cathedral dates from 1172. Next, we visit St. Patrick’s Cathedral. Built-in 1192 in honor of Ireland’s patron saint. It stands adjacent to the famous well, where tradition has it, St. Patrick baptized converts on his visit to Dublin. This grand, Gothic cathedral owes part of its renown for being the burial site of its former Dean, Jonathan Swift, author of Gulliver’s Travels. Next, we continue on to our hotel and enjoy a group meal before getting some sleep.
Day Three
  • Today’s first stop is the sprawling campus of Trinity College and its famous library. The building is home to the 8th century Book of Kells, a splendidly illuminated version of the Christian Gospels. We also get the chance to visit the Long Room. Once the principal library of the University, it now contains over two hundred thousand books and manuscripts. Next, we board our motorcoach for the short drive into the Wicklow Mountains and Glendalough, located south of Dublin. Known as “the Garden of Ireland”, it is the site of a 6th-century monastic site founded by St. Kevin. Set in a glaciated valley with two lakes, the monastic remains include a superb round tower, stone churches and decorated crosses. The Visitor Center has an interesting exhibition on Glendalough detailing the history, archaeology, and wildlife of this part of Wicklow and includes an audio-visual presentation. Later, we return to Dublin to enjoy the balance of the day at leisure, before returning to our hotel for dinner and overnight accommodations.
