Thessaloniki to Philippi
by Steve Ray on October 27, 2018
We drove just under two hours to Philippi from our very nice hotel in Thessaloniki. We have two sites to visit today which are both related to St. Paul. The first is Philippi where we will tour of the ancit site and see the prison where Paul and Silas were chained (Acts 16). Will also have Mass on the river where he baptized his first European convert named Lydia. Fr. Gregory’s homily.
Then we visited Kavala which is the modern name of ancient Neapolis where Paul first set foot on European soil.
We then flew back to Athens for a very short night before everyone flies home or to Rome or other destinations. It’s been a great pilgrimage! These videos will continue with the contingent that is going with Janet and I for three days to Rome.
