Although we made the difficult decision to not host an in-person pilgrimage this year, we are preparing ways to celebrate with you virtually.
Mark your calendar for August 8th.
We will start the day with a service "A Glimpse of Tabor: Celebrating (the Feast of) Transfiguration at New Skete". This video will feature chants and music, along with photos and video clips of church services.
At 1 pm, we will post a video by Brother Christopher, “Pilgrimage is at the Heart of Each of Our Lives,” and he will describe his experience of walking on pilgrimage last fall in Italy.
Later in the month we will present a panel discussion on making a spiritual pilgrimage during the pandemic.
This fall we will create a series of "day in our lives" videos. You will be able to follow some of our daily prayers, work, and recreation.
Videos will be posted on here, on the home page of this website, and then moved to the events page for later viewing.
