Name: The Evolution of Spiritual Communities Walking Tour
Date: August 17, 2018
Time: 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM EDT
Event Description:
Learn about the histories and complex relationships among the spiritual communities that evolved in Gloucester over its 400-year history on this tour to eight places of worship (or their former locations). From the time of the earliest English settlers, the church was the center of community life, yet for nearly two hundred years there was only one denomination to choose from: Congregational. In a very short period of time, as immigration patterns shifted in the 19th century, choices blossomed as people of many different religious preferences—among them Universalists, Unitarians, Baptists, Methodists, Catholics and Jews—established themselves on Cape Ann. Our Lady by Stephenson Guided walking tours are held rain or shine and last about 1½ hours; participants should be comfortable being on their feet for that amount of time. $10 members; $20 nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required. Tickets can be purchased by calling 978-283-0455 x10 or online at Eventbrite. Not a member of the Museum?
