Don't Miss Out! Sign Up Today for the CRCDS Pilgrimage to the Holy Land!

Space is limited — join faculty, students and friends of CRCDS in the Spring of 2017 as we travel to the Holy Land. This acclaimed trip includes visits to three sacred faith communities—Jewish, Christian and Muslim—and provides the opportunity to experience first-hand the daily life of the people who call the region home.

Important Information:

More about the trip:

Participants will examine both religious and political realities in the Holy Land, while looking through the lens of military occupation—the ancient Roman occupation and the contemporary Israeli occupation—that tears the fabric and peoples of the land.  Particular attention will be paid both to the lives and faith of Palestinians living under occupation today—including visits to Bethlehem, Hebron, Nablus, Jenin—and “the forgotten Palestinians” living in the state of Israel—including visits to Acre, East Jerusalem, Haifa, Jaffa. Throughout the trip, there will be occasions for daily group reflection, for lectures on biblical and contemporary theological and ethical topics, and for worship and prayer.

Total cost for airfare, full-board accommodation, guides, transport, and amenities is $5,500. Please note that this trip is a pilgrimage and accommodations will be simple, safe, and clean. Single occupancy accommodations throughout the trip are available for an additional $500.

Please contact Dr. Melanie Duguid-May ( ) or Dr. Mark Brummitt ( for more information.

This travel opportunity is offered through the CRCDS Department of Academic Life and by the Gene Bennett Program for Life Long Learning.

CRCDS Black Student Caucus presents Black Alumni/ae Revival, November 3-4, 2016

CRCDS Black Student Caucus President Stefan Weathers invites all CRCDS Black Alumni/ae to the 2016 Black Alumni/ae Revival, November 3-4.

Stefan’s invitation follows below:

“It is with great excitement that I invite you to the Black Student Caucus of Colgate Rochester Crozer Divinity School Annual Alumni/ae Fall Revival! The Revival will take place from Thursday, November 3rd through Friday, November 4th at 7 pm each night at First Genesis Baptist Church. First Genesis is located at 292 Hudson Avenue in Rochester, NY. This event is free and open to the public.

As a valued Alumni/ae of this illustrious institution, and the powerful organization of students that is the BSC, it would be wonderful if you could make it to this Revival. The purpose of the Revival is to be a fundraiser for the BSC, which will provide resources for the various programs and initiatives of the Caucus throughout the year. More importantly, however, the purpose of the Revival is to maintain or reinvigorate the connection between current Black Students and the Alumni/ae, who have gone on to do great things for the Kingdom of God. We greatly appreciate your support and encourage you to stay connected and reconnect if need be!

Thank you for paying attention to my message. May God continue to Bless and keep you.

Stefan Weathers, President, CRCDS  Black Student Caucus"
