In the Footsteps of St. Paul
Mary Holmen and Mary DeGrow have just finished a trip to Greece. While there, they were part of a tour that took them to sites associated with the ministry of St. Paul. They sent us pictures from a few of the sites.
The theatre where Paul attempted to preach to the Ephesians but was drowned out by the devotees of Artemis (Diana) in Acts 19
Ancient baptistry in the ruins of Philippi. You can see the remnants of a fresco on the wall.
Place where Paul, Silvanus and Timothy are believed to have been imprisoned at Philippi.
This is the shrine on the river outside Philippi where Paul met with Lydia. I love the silhouette - a woman’s figure, a cross, an ankh...
Shrine commemorating Paul’s vision of the Macedonian asking him to come and help them. Kavala is where Paul first set foot on European soil - our roots as Western Christians!
