Pilgrimage Week

Sunday, May 01, 2022 - Saturday, May 07, 2022

May 1-7 is Pilgrimage Week in the Baltimore-Washington Conference. Individuals, families and small groups are encouraged to tour a variety of the conference’s historic sites.

The BWC has 16 historical sites and 33 component sites within our bounds. This year, several sites, listed below, are featured.

If you can’t visit in person, Archives and History will highlight one historic site per day for six days starting Sunday, May 1 through a virtual pilgrimage experience on the BWC YouTube channel, Facebook page, and website.

Pilgrimage Week will conclude on Saturday, May 7, when multiple sites will be open for you to explore, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Be sure to print out your passport and have it marked at each location. If you make it to four or more locations that day, at your final stop you will receive a small gift.

Use the hashtag #BWCPilgrimageWeek2022 so that we can see your photos and posts.
