Pastor Vernon Meyer of Sun Lakes United Church of Christ will lead a tour to the Passion Play in Oberammergau in 2020.
The Passion Play is an event held every 10 years to celebrate the end of the plague in the small town of Oberammergau in the Bavarian region of southern Germany. The villager’s prayers were answered by God and therefore in 1634 the first Passion Play took place. The promise has been kept until today. 2020 will mark the 42nd time the play had been presented. The play is a sell out and the only way to get tickets is through a package tour. The group will be visiting Vienna, Innsbruck and Salzburg in Austria, Oberammergau and Munich in Germany.
Join Pastor Vernon Meyer and the Rev. Holly Herring from Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix on this ecumenical 10-day tour that begins in Vienna, Austria and ends in Munich with the highlight being 2 days in Oberammergau.
