On the 2014 Pilgrimage, a group of 16 to 18 year-olds will travel, worship and work together for a month as they explore the regions of South America where Quakers live and worship. The pilgrimage will be a month-long, from July to August 2014. Through their time together and their encounters with local Friends they will experience the diversity of Friends’ traditions, and strengthen their relationship with God.
