Pilgrimage 2011 - Hungary and Romania!

Back to Partner Church

The Partner Church Committee is planning our return visit to Hungary and Romania in 2011. Members and friends of the First Unitarian Church of San Jose are invited. All travelers must be high school age or above. Travelers must be mature enough to independently act responsibly, as there will be no adult supervision at times. We will visit Budapest (Hungary), Kolozsvar (Romania) and our partner church in the village of Homoródszentmárton (Romania). This trip will bring you to the birth place of Unitarianism where we will explore our history from the middle ages through modern times. You will work with our hosts on several service projects for our partner church.

To keep the trip from becoming too large, we will run two trips. Both trips will have youth activities. The first trip will have added activities tailored towards adults and run from July 14 through July 29 with an extra day in Budapest. The second trip will be youth oriented from July 21 to Aug 4. Both trips will overlap one night in our partner church village. Trip #2 is now full and has a wait list. Trip #1 has many openings.

The estimated cost of the trip is $2600 (includes airfare). Scholarship help will be available. Meals in Budapest and Kolosvar will not be covered.
