Pilgrim Church Service Reenactment
A group of 51 Pilgrims representing the survivors of the first winter will step off from the Mayflower Society House at 2:00 PM to the beat of a drum. They will then proceed to Forefathers Monument, where a re-enactment of a Pilgrim Church Service will take place using the order of worship that was used in 1612 in Leyden and in Robinson’s Farewell Sermon of 1620!
