Senior Adult Day Trip: Pilgrimage of Pain & Hope: The Houston Holocaust & Human Rights Museum 

Thursday, January 25, 8:30 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Join Rachel and Michael Sciretti and Robert Westheimer for this contemplative “pilgrimage and docent-led tour through the Holocaust Museum in Houston.

In addition to learning about the suffering of the Jewish people during the Holocaust, this spiritual formation opportunity will open us to larger issues of genocide and human rights so that we can become more intentional manifestations of the Christ.

There will be large-group touring time, periods of personal reflection, as well as times for group sharing. The group will be limited to 15 participants. A sandwich lunch will be provided.
