The Pittsburgh pilgrimage is one of six events that the Episcopal Church is working with diocesan teams to organize as “Episcopal Revivals” in 2017 and 2018. Their goal, according to a recent press release, is “to stir and renew hearts for Jesus, to equip Episcopalians as evangelists, and to welcome people who aren’t part of a church to join the Jesus Movement.”

Complete Episcopal News Service coverage will follow the close of the Pittsburgh pilgrimage.

The revivals slated for 2017 and 2018 are:

May 5 – 7: Diocese of West Missouri

Sept. 23-24: Diocese of Georgia

Nov. 17-19: Diocese of San Joaquin

April 6 – 8, 2018: Diocese of Honduras

July 2018: Joint Evangelism Mission with the Church of England
