Since most of you probably have no idea what Saint George’s College is and its purpose, I figured this would be a good time to introduce you all to our new home for the next two weeks. I had mentioned before that I have been to the Holy Land once before in the summer of 1999. I was 17 years old and since then the memories have faded or even disappeared altogether. (I am secretly hoping that walking the paths I once walked, smelling the smells I once smelled, and tasting the tastes I once tasted will bring back those long dormant memories.) I had thought that when I was last in Jerusalem that I had been to Saint George’s College, but as we entered through the large iron gates it was all new to me. So come with me as I show you around the grounds of the College. The college grounds are also the cathedral grounds as the Cathedral Church of Saint George the Martyr is here. This is the seat of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem which is one of four dioceses that make up the Province called the Episcopal Church in Jerusalem and the Middle East. This is the epicenter of Anglicanism in the Holy Land and gracious hosts to thousands of pilgrims each year. Let me show you around.
Hope you enjoyed our tour of the college and cathedral grounds. Look forward to seeing you all again soon.
