The fifth of the Anglo-Catholic Congress Pilgrimages to the Holy Land, which have been organized at intervals since 1924, left London yesterday under the leadership of Dr. Kenneth Mackenzie, Bishop of Argyll and the Isles. The tour will cover the greater part of April.

The pilgrims will be received on their arrival by the Anglican Bishop in Jerusalem, Dr. Rennie McInnes, and the Patriarch of Jerusalem, Mgr. Damianos. They will spend about six days in Jerusalem, and will also visit Bethlehem. Nazareth. Haifa and other places. The objects of the pilgrimages are stated to be (1) to stimulate interest in and devotion to the Holy Places; (2) to promote the cause of reunion with the Orthodox Church; and (3) to assist the work of the Anglican Churches in the Near East.
