Iona 2020 Pilgrimage

Come and join a pilgrimage to the Iona Community for one week, October 3-10, 2020.


 Iona is a small island off the west coast of Scotland, one of the Inner Hebrides. Iona has an astounding and breathtaking history. Columba landed here from Ireland in 563 with 12 of his fellow monks and amazingly from that day to this, Iona has been and continues to be a place of pilgrimage. That’s 1456 years - there is a cross standing about 5 meters tall outside the Abbey, St Martin’s Cross, which is 1200 years old! Just imagine the pilgrims who have walked these paths.

In 1938, George McLeod, minister, visionary and prophet for peace, established the Iona community, rebuilding the Abbey Church, Cloisters and the Abbey buildings. This has become an ecumenical Christian community of people from all over the world. Spirituality and hospitality are at the core of the community.

This is an amazing opportunity to go with friends from St Mary’s, to stay and experience the community for one week, living the community life, sharing not only meals - which are scrumptious - but sharing tasks, the life and running of the house. And all centred around the daily worship – much of the music familiar to us here at St Mary’s.

The cost is £545 (C$925 in mid October), including a non-refundable deposit of £100. This includes all your meals, programme, music, art materials and the unique experience of staying in the ancient Abbey as part of a vibrant and life-giving community. Excellent value and lots of fun!

We have booked 15 spaces – Please contact Rev. Christine Rowe ASAP if you are interested (christine@stmaryskerrisdale.ca) and would like more information as we need to confirm details imminently.
