"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Orthodox Anglican Pilgrimage to Israel, June 2009

Fr. Randall Foster of St. Vincent's Cathedral and School, Bedford, Texas, will be leading a pilgrimage tour to Israel beginning June 4, 2009. The tour will include 10 days in Israel, visiting holy sites all over the State of Israel and spending a good deal of time in and around Galilee and Jerusalem. The price of this trip should be about $3259 per person (plus any landing fees and fuel surcharges imposed by the airlines). This quite reasonable price includes first-class hotel accommodations, three meals per day and fees to enter attractions. It also includes roundtrip airfare from New York to Tel Aviv. (You would need to arrange your own travel to and from New York.) The lectures by Fr. Foster are, of course, free. (But remember, you get what you pay for! ;-) RWF+)

While these details are still subject to change, this ten day trip should be a marvelous one. Do please contact Fr. Foster at St. Vincent's if you are interested in finding out more about our trip next June.

Great! I think we will get thirty people for our group. That is ideal, with a big bus and two priests to keep things well-ordered. (That "well-ordered" part is a joke, obviously--"priests" and "well-ordered" virtually never go together in the same sentence!)

This sounds amazing. I am interested if it doesn't conflict with St. Mikes. Also if there is approval given by my Doctor...... and Priest :).

Eli, I just heard from Fr. Cantrell that SMYC-SW starts on June 7th and the date cannot be moved. So that means I must miss St. Mike's next year. Bummer. Looks like you may have a tough decision to make.
