OPPORTUNITY TO JOIN THE PILGRIMAGE OF PAIN & HOPE
From August 31 – September 2, 2024 the Commission on the Beloved Community is journeying as pilgrims together across the State College District. On this pilgrimage, we will seek to be attentive to both the pain and the hope experienced by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color) in the past and present day, exploring and reflecting on the geography, history, and stories of the people we are called to serve, stepping transformed together into a future that is faithful.  There are just a few seats remaining on this journey and registration closes soon.

The cost for the pilgrimage is $370 per person for those requiring accommodations and $170 for those who do need lodging in the hotel.

Register online and to receive more information, please contact Pastor Robin Fillmore at rfillmore@susumc.org.
