Pilgrimage to Wilmington

May 10-12

“Before 1898, Wilmington was home to 11,324 African Americans and 8,731 white people. It was North Carolina’s largest and most bustling city, and much of its success was thanks to African American leaders and businesspeople” (“A History of Hatred and Love in Wilmington, North Carolina” by Lauren Krouse). During the upcoming diocesan pilgrimage, we will prayerfully remember and learn more about the Coup of 1898, journeying through history until today.

Based on the book Wilmington’s Lie by David Zucchino, the subject of the diocesan book study currently underway, the pilgrimage will take place on the new dates of May 10-12. Participation in the book study is not required to take part in the pilgrimage, but it is recommended that participants read the book before departure.

Throughout the three days, pilgrims will integrate learning and experiences from the book with worship and reflection. The pilgrimage includes bus transportation to and from St. Luke’s, Durham; lodging; meals and a host of activities.

Spaces are expected to fill quickly, so reserve yours today!
