For more than two decades the UUPCC Pilgrimage Service has helped to cement the bonds between North American UUs and their partners overseas.
In recent years, we have expanded our pilgrimage opportunities to meet the needs of individual UUs of all ages. These offerings are for those who wish to meet the Unitarians and Unitarian Universalists in other countries, even if your church is not partnered. Experience our faith in action in different cultures. Every pilgrimage includes personal contact with local congregations where you will have the opportunity to worship in the local tradition. Local guides provide historic insights to each country's religious history. Your journey includes cultural highlights along with many personal connections. Pilgrimages are well-structured to include all ground transportation, airport pick-up and drop-off, hotels/guest houses, meals, admission fees, guides, and translators.

GROUP & CONGREGATIONAL PILGRIMAGES
These private trips are organized by congregations, youth groups, choirs, or other intereseted parties. If you are registering for your congregation's group pilgrimage, you will receive a registration link from your group coordinator.
