Copied URL to clipboard

Join students and Duke community members for the weekend of September 9–11, 2022 in an opportunity to discover how your spiritual journey is connected to our city, Durham.

The Durham Pilgrimage of Pain and Hope immerses participants in the story of the city of Durham as well as the biblical story. Participants will reflect on what these stories means for how they live their lives in Durham. The pilgrimage is led by a DurhamCares, a local nonprofit with a mission to foster collaboration, develop leaders, and educate the people of Durham to care for their neighbors in holistic ways.

Space on the pilgrimage is limited. To learn more and sign up, contact the Chapel’s community minister, Rev. Breana van Velzen.

Place is really important, and I didn’t want to be in Durham without knowing the history and the story of the place. The pilgrimage was an opportunity to listen deeper into the story of Durham.

— Kiana Hertogh, D ’22
