What happens after the Pilgrimage Weekend?
All pilgrims are introduced to the 4th Day sometime during the weekend. The 4th Day is what we call ourselves and is organized into groups known as Ultreyas. The expectation of 4th Day is to continue the relationship of the pilgrims with other 4th Day members. The focus of these small groups is to continue to grow spiritually with God and Jesus Christ. When Pilgrims return to their homes they should be prepared to contribute to their church and communities via example, participation and leadership in local activities. It is hoped that by doing this they will bring nonbelievers to Christ and reform their environments in God’s glory.
“See what love the Father has given us, that we should be called children of God.” 1 John 3:1
What is the purpose of Presbyterian Pilgrimage?
The purpose is to help people gain a deeper understanding of God’s love for them; to appropriate Jesus’ will for their lives and to help reform their environments for Christ. Staff work throughout the year in preparation for the weekend retreat.
