For more than a decade the UUPCC Pilgrimage Service has helped to cement the bonds between North American UUs and their partners overseas.
In recent years, we have expanded our portfolio of opportunities to meet the needs of individual UUs of all ages, even if your church is not partnered. These offerings are for those who wish to meet the Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists in other countries. Experience our faith in action in different cultures. Every pilgrimage includes personal contact with local congregations. You will have the opportunity to worship in the local tradition. Local guides provide historic insights to each country's religious history. Each journey includes cultural highlights along with the personal connections. Pilgrimages include all ground transportation, airport pick-up and drop-off, hotels/guest houses, meals, admission fees, guides, and translators.
Group and Congregational Pilgrimages
If you are registering for your congregation's group pilgrimage, you will receive a registration link from your group coordinator. Be sure to read the UUPCC trip cancellation policy before you register.
