Oberammergau  Passion Play 2020

Every ten years the people of the Bavarian village of Oberammergau fulfil their oath to God and perform a Passion Play. It dates back to 1633 when the village was spared  from the plague and as a token of thanksgiving the oath was made. Seeing the play and experiencing the village is an unforgettable experience. Pam will be leading a group to the Tyrol and the Passion Play from 30th June – 7th July and has extended an invitation to the Benefice for us to join them. For more information or a booking form don’t hesitate to get in touch with her – soon! Pam McKellen 0776 254833
