Orthodox Church Pilgrimage to Alaska July 8 – 14, 2020

2020 marks the 50th Anniversaries of the Granting of Autocephaly and the Glorification of Saint Herman of Alaska.  As part of the Church-wide celebration of these events, each diocese of the Orthodox Church in America will sponsor a week-long pilgrimage to Alaska during the summer of 2020. Open to all faithful, the pilgrimage features visits to many major Orthodox Christian sites in Kodiak, Kenai and the Anchorage region. Kodiak’s Holy Resurrection Cathedral, in which the relics of Saint Herman are enshrined, and Saint Herman’s Seminary will be part of that event. The pilgrimage also includes an outing to Spruce Island, where Saint Herman lived, prayed, fell asleep in the Lord, and initially buried.
