Hometown Pilgrimage


Thursday, October 10, 2013


Huntsville is blessed with an abundance of global cultures. We have the opportunity to expand our understanding of each other by journeying with fellow "pilgrims" to experience the traditions of other faiths and participate in spiritual practices. The focus is on experiencing sacred gatherings and spiritual practices of different cultures - all the while nurturing a shared commitment to deepened understanding of “the other.” This year's pilgrimage will focus on historic congregations in the Huntsville area. Temple B’nai Sholom, Church Street Cumberland Presbyterian and St. Joseph's Catholic Church all have historical markers on their congregation grounds. The Huntsville Islamic Center and North Alabama Hindu Cultural Center are the result of the area's changing demographics and are the first for their traditions. Join us as we take this historical pilgrimage to expand our understanding.
