To mark the culmination of their 40th anniversary year, McCabe Pilgrimages invites guests to join them on a Cruise & Stay voyage to discover the Aegean In the wake of St. Paul the Apostle. Journey through the emerald waters of the sun-soaked Cyclades and the stunning coastline of Turkey, exploring iconic landmarks, savouring authentic cuisine and discovering the trials and tribulations of St. Paul’s epic journey to the Eastern Mediterranean region.
This special journey includes exclusive McCabe events in the company of BBCTV Presenter and Songs of Praise host, Pam Rhodes, front man of the legendary Manfred Mann, Paul Jones and Fiona Hendley-Jones, actress and Christian speaker—all hosted by Christians in Entertainment Director Chris Gidney.
During the trip the Revd Dr Peter Walker will be bringing fresh insights from his book In the Steps of Saint Paul. Peter first led a McCabe ‘Steps of Paul’ tour back in 1993, and his many subsequent tours led in time to his publishing this fascinating book which takes the reader around all the places visited by Paul—from Damascus to Rome—highlighting what Paul did there and what visitors can now expect to see in each location. Peter will provide exclusive lectures, and all our special guests will take part in exclusive McCabe events.
Cruise ports of call include Thessaloniki: to travel to Veria (Beroea) visited by Paul on his second missionary journey. Kusadasi: to see Ephesus, where Paul preached and the Virgin Mary is believed by some to have spent the last days of her life. Heraklion (Crete): for Fair Havens and the church of St Titus. Santorini: with its Monastery of the Prophet Elias. Mykonos: for the holy sanctuaries of Delos & Apollo. And, finally, calling at Milos with its marble amphitheatre and wonderful views over the bay where the Venus de Milo was discovered in 1820. Time in these ports is ample to enjoy the included excursions and then have free time to wander, visit local beaches and (in Santorini and Mykonos) to sample the local nightlife.
