The Camino de Santiago

The Camino de Santiago has both a physical path, one traveled mile by mile, and a spiritual path, one that is internal and unique to each pilgrim. On the Camino, we will experience friendship, daily prayer, personal reflection, communion with nature, and a spiritual connection with each other and the world. We will end our walk at the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela and participate in a pilgrims' Mass.
