While the Covid-19 pandemic has caused many adjustments and some
cancellations, the Knights Templar Holy Land Pilgrimage program moves ahead
with eyes forward.
Knight Templar Holy Land Pilgrimage for Christian Ministers.
Keep in mind this vital date: September 20. It is the date each year that all
Pilgrim Ministers are to be registered with the registrar of the Grand Encampment
Committee on the Holy Land Pilgrimage. It is the same date every year. Grand
recorders and your state committee chairman need to have sent in the:
- Registration Form
- Nomination Form
- And full payment by that date.
The groups of Pilgrim Ministers travel in February. There are many arrangements,
reservations, bookings, and details to be put in place from September through the
end of January.
All other activities can happen year-round. These would include: recruitment of
ministers to be nominated (see Guidelines for Selection), fundraising, and program
promotion. Ministers can be nominated by a local commandery and those nominations forwarded to your state Holy Land Pilgrimage Committee or chairman at any
time. Donations and fundraising can also be an ongoing enterprise.
Always check the web site listed below for the most current information and details.
In the Footsteps of Jesus Holy Land Pilgrimage for Sir Knights, their Ladies,
Friends, And Guests is open to anyone. Each person is responsible for his own
fees and expenses related to the pilgrimage. Each person is responsible for being
able to manage his own luggage and follow the itinerary. This pilgrimage is an
eleven-day program that covers as much ground as possible in the touring days.
We average five to seven miles of walking many days, often uphill or up steps and
on uneven surfaces.
Current plans are moving forward for the next In the Footsteps Pilgrimage for
November 7 – 17, 2022. See the website listed below for more information.
