Journeys of Paul Cruise with Bishop Bickerton


Anyone who has dreamed about walking in the footsteps of the Apostle Paul will have the opportunity during a special cruise in October 2018 with Bishop Thomas J. Bickerton. The bishop will host the nine-day journey aboard Royal Caribbean’s “Jewel of the Seas,” in conjunction with Educational Opportunities Tours.

Beginning and ending in Rome, the October 14-25 trip includes stops in Taormina and Pompeii, Italy; Mykonos, Santorini, Athens, and Corinth, Greece; and Ephesus, Turkey. There is also an optional two-day tour of Vatican City on October 25-26.

Dr. Peter Walker, professor of Biblical Studies at Trinity School for Ministry in Pennsylvania, will be guest lecturer during the trip. He has written the book, “In the Steps of Saint Paul.” The voyage will also include time for daily worship and Bible study, as well taking in the ancient sites and natural beauty of the region.

A letter and brochure have been mailed from the conference office, or you can find reservation information online. The first registration deadline to receive a discount is October 15.

In the letter, the bishop wrote: “I look forward to the possibility of sharing this journey with you as we build a deeper relationship with one another and with the Word of God as it comes alive in the midst of these ancient cities.”
