GREECE & TURKEY

Walk with St. Paul through modern day Greece and Turkey.


You will go where he proclaimed the Gospel through Corinth, Philippi, and Ephesus and many other of the earliest Christian communities of the first two centuries.

Greece

Athens is full of treasures from the ancient world, both academic and architectural. Today it is home to the Cathedral and Patriarch of the Greek Orthodox Church.

St. Paul lived for two years in Corinth as he evangelized and spread the faith.

For a thousand years monks have been living on the cliffs at Meteora and 500 years ago they built the seven monasteries that are still there today.

Thessaloniki is another major city where Paul traveled and preached during his ministry. The New Testament letter to the Thessalonians was written to this community.

Kavala is the ancient port town where St. Paul first landed in Greece with Timothy and Silas. It was also the first European city to convert to Christianity.

Turkey

St. John wrote about Izmir (ancient Smyrna) in the book of Revelation and today the Diocese and Cathedral of Izmir are dedicated to him.

Not far from Kusadasi is the ancient house of Mary, where she was brought by St. John as he was entrusted to her care until her Dormition and assumption into heaven.

In a cave on this remote island, St. John received the divine revelation recorded in the final book of the Bible.

The Temple of Artemis – one of the Seven Wonders of the World – once stood in Ephesus and Paul often preached there to win souls for Christ. Today there are churches at tomb of St. Luke and also at the former tomb of St. John.

Istanbul’s Christian roots are some of the oldest in the world outside of Jerusalem. Come explore the ancient and modern Catholic traditions here.
