Diocesan Youth Pilgrimage
CAMINO DE SANTIAGO
22nd – 29th JULY 2014
If you are looking for an altogether different experience this summer you can find yourself on The Way. For the first time we are organising a youth pilgrimage for those aged between 16 and 35 to walk along the final stage of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela or the Way of St. James this July. It’s an outward and inward spiritual journey, where we take the time to walk together, reflect and enjoy an unforgettable experience that continues to draw people from all around the world.
Our Camino pilgrimage will take place from the 22nd to the 29th of July. It’s an opportunity to take time out from a busy world and to walk in a relaxed manner. Each morning as the sun rises we will start with a simple prayer and reflection. Then shouldering our packs we set off for the horizon, meeting people along the way or perhaps walking in solitude, depending on what you feel like at the time. You don’t need to super fit, but a moderate level of fitness is desirable.
Our preparation days will include lots of walking around the beautiful sites of Ireland to get us ready for our Camino. The cost per person is €690 which includes flights, accommodation, meals en route and airport transfers. Our Spiritual Director will be Fr. Kevin Walsh; we will also have a rep from Marian Pilgrimages to guide us along the way. This will be a unique and very enjoyable week for young people.
