Follow the Interfaith Pilgrimage to Honduras
Over 70 delegates from five countries, representing diverse religious traditions and advocacy organizations made their way to San Pedro Sula to begin pilgrimage, March 18-25. They use pilgrimage to describe the way they will journey as a community and how they come to Honduras. They are not on a tour, but rather are committed to engaging in a spiritual practice that enables them to encounter the sacred in places of suffering. Pilgrimage encourages them to consider their own journeys to find healing and to learn and discover how they connect their stories with stories of the people they meet. Follow the journey here.
