Pilgrimage

Pilgrimage for Veterans and Military Community

Saturday, February 3, 2018 | 9:30am

The Rev. David Peters leads an interdenominational pilgrimage at Washington National Cathedral. Pilgrimages are journeys of healing, connection, and blessing. Veterans, military families and community members are invited to participate in this experience, which is an element of the Cathedral’s expanded ministries with the veterans and military communities.

The Rev. Dr. David W. Peters is the founder of the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship and author of Post Traumatic God: How the Church Cares for People Who Have Been to Hell and Back. Peters served as an enlisted Marine and Army Chaplain and was named in 2017 as one of five Fellows by the Episcopal Church Foundation. The Episcopal Veterans Fellowship equips Christians for missional ministry to veterans through prayer, hospitality, and reconciliation. EVF offers educational workshops, consulting and coaching so your Church can reach out with God’s love to the veterans who live in your community. Members of the Hospitallers of St. Martin, a new monastic Christian Community within the Episcopal Church, focuses on Prayer, Hospitality, and Reconciliation for veterans and all those who have been affected by war, poverty, and violence.  More information about EVF at episcopalveteransfellowship.org.
