Greece - Following in the footsteps of St Paul
Spiritual Director - Fr Peter Andrews, Tour Leader - Mary Smith
Testimony of the importance of Greece in the history of the Early Church is the fact that it was here that the first Christian state arose, the Byzantine Empire, which was to keep the light of Christianity alive for over a thousand years when Rome had been overrun by barbarians.
It was St Paul that first brought Christianity to Europe and this 9 day pilgrimage will bring to life the early churches Paul founded and corresponded with. Places so familiar from the New Testament including Thessaloniki, Philippi and Corinth.
