Going to Church in South Africa

Today, the Pilgrimage for Peace along with other participants in the TEAM 2007 conference visited a variety of churches throughout the greater Johannesburg area. Most of us chose to visit Sophiatown and the parish of Christ the King a site of deep significance for the Anti-Apartheid movement --- an area in which the Anglican Community of the Resurrection, monastic order of both women and men lived and worked. One of these monastics, Trevor Huddleston is a much beloved and celebrated anti-apartheid activist and his ashes are interred in the churchyard of Christ the King.

So much has been happening with the Pilgrimage for Peace, the Episcopal News Service covered our visits yesterday in the Diocese of Pretoria. Visit to find out more.
