The 500-mile Journey from Bethlehem to Salem will kick off next Monday in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. On September 27, Salem friends, alumnae, and staff will enjoy tours of historic Bethlehem, take part in a service in the Old Chapel where the original Sisters would have worshipped before they set off for their journey to North Carolina, and enjoy dinner at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem.
On Tuesday, September 28, 38 walkers will start the first leg of the journey with a celebratory send-off by the Mayor of Bethlehem, the President of Moravian University, the Head of Moravian Academy, and Craig Atwood, Dean of Moravian Theological Seminary and former Salem Academy and College Chaplain.
You can still participate in the once-in-a-lifetime Journey virtually! Visit 250.salem.edu/journey for more details. You can also join the us for the last leg of the Journey when we will walk from Bethabara to Salem. You can walk with us all 6.8 miles on October 26, join us at downtown’s Corpening Plaza at 3:30 p.m. to walk the last four blocks, or be at Salem Square by 4 p.m. to greet us for our Homecoming celebration!
