Pilgrims Retrace Apostle Paul's Journey

ShipSix hundred Greek-American and American pilgrims will sail this autumn in Apostle Paul’s footsteps setting out from Lavrio, with intermediate stops in Patmos, Kousadasi, Istanbul, Kavala and Thessaloniki.
The details of this pilgrimage voyage are being examined by a private company that has consulted with the Synod office of pilgrimage tours of the Holy Synod of the Church of Greece and has secured the Synod’s approval. In fact, Louis Cruises will organize  two weekly religious-themed cruises titled The Path of Apostle Paul on October 18 and 25, which will include visits to Greek sacred monuments. The official reception for the cruise ship is to be held in Thessaloniki.
The pilgrimage trips offer the opportunity to actually follow the religious path where Saint Paul journeyed during his preaching of Christianity. Following in the footsteps of the Apostle, the company’s unique seven-day cruise leads passengers to the lands visited by the “Apostle of the Nations” in Greece and Turkey.
This is the statement of the president of the Synod office of pilgrimage tours, His Emminence Bishop of Dodoni Chrysostomos, after his recent meeting in Thessaloniki with the Minister of Macedonia and Thrace, Theodoros Karaoglou, within the framework of the cooperation between the Synod and the Ministry for the promotion of religious tourism.
