Allegheny Pilgrims is an annual gathering of current and former LDS women. An off-shoot of Midwest Pilgrims, this group was created to serve the Mid-Atlantic region (and beyond). Allegheny Pilgrims provides a safe space to learn from, vent to, strengthen, support, and enjoy each other as we navigate our identities as Mormons and as women.
