Pilgrimage

In summer 2021, the General Council will employ the Pilgrims, along with two young adult leaders and a representative from a United Church global partner, in a journey across the country. Along the way, Pilgrims will attend United Church of Canada youth events, gatherings, camps, and so on in order to listen to the dreams and needs of young people and to reflect on and relay the work of the General Council. Their summer employment will begin with planning and orientation time in their region, including training in listening and facilitation skills to prepare for this cross-country pilgrimage.
