The Hometown Pilgrimage is an annual event that features a series of visits to local congregations of various faith traditions. For the past six years, these annual visits to congregations in our community have given adults and youth a chance to learn about religious beliefs and to experience worship services of different faiths.
In 2014, IMS took a slightly different approach to the pilgrimage. In addition to experiences of religious services, we included the opportunity to experience Faith, Science and Culture in our Community. Below is the information for the past 2014 Hometown Pilgrimage.
Stay tuned for information on the 2015 event!
