The Christian Unity Commission for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Southwark has been in existence for over forty years. Our main task is to encourage Catholics within the Archdiocese to work and pray for Christian unity.
Ecumenical Pilgrimage to the Holy Land 2023
The Holy Land is an important place of pilgrimage for Christians, where it is possible to tread in the footsteps of Christ. It offers the chance to bring the Gospel stories to life through the senses and to deeply consider the roots of our faith. Following a highly successful joint pilgrimage in 2020, the Archdiocese of Southwark and the Anglican Diocese of Southwark will be jointly hosting a pilgrimage to this special place in 2023 and you are invited to join them.
For more information, please visit Ecumenical Pilgrimage to the Holy Land 2023.
If you would like to be part of this wonderful pilgrimage we encourage you to secure your place as soon as possible.
