Camino de Santiago, The Way

 with the

The Most Reverend, Donald Hying, Bishop of Madison

in celebration of the

75th Anniversary of the Diocese of Madison, Wisconsin

Join us on this amazing pilgrimage following the footsteps of the Apostle St. James the Greater, evangelizer of Spain, brother of St. John the Evangelist, son of Zebedee. One of the most spectacular journeys you'll ever experience!  Our pilgrimage will be walking the famous Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James) across Spain, the second oldest pilgrimage route in Christendom.

Bonus! The pilgrimage will be making 3 brief visits to amazingly beautiful Marian Shrines! Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, site of the apparitions of The Immaculate Conception to St. Bernadette! Shrine of the Virgin of Torreciudad, sitting on the foothills of the Aragonian Pyrenees, and site of many conversion miracles. Shrine/Co-Cathedral/Basilica of Our Lady of the Pillar, site of Mary's visitation to St. James, the first ever recorded apparition (a bilocation to be exact) of Mary (40 AD).   

During the first days of the pilgrimage there will be sporadic walking across Spain, but the last 100 kilometers (66 miles approximately) of the itinerary will be on foot in order to obtain the coveted pilgrimage certificate of The Camino, given by the Diocese of Santiago de Compostela. If you are not concerned about receiving the Camino Certificate, then walking on the Camino is not compulsory.

Visit the following locations: In France, Lourdes and the French Pyrenees. In Spain: Spanish Pyrenees, Torreciudad, El Pilar in Zaragoza (where Mary appeared to St. James),  Logroño, Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Rioja Wine Region, Burgos, Ponferrada, Sarria, Portomarin  Palas del Rey, Arzua, O Pedrouzo, Santiago de Compostela, Finisterre (Land's End) or Fisterra, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.

Enjoy the natural beauty of the Camino! Join us! This pilgrimage will provide many opportunities for deep prayer and conversation with God along the Way.

NOTE 2: This pilgrimage is expected to sell out before its registration deadline (January 11, 2021)

NOTE 4: Pilgrims who wish to complete this pilgrimage in it's entirety, in order to receive the certificate from Diocese of Santiago de Compostela, should know that there is an excessive amount of walking required (from 2 to 22 miles a day). However, there are options for those who wish to avoid excessive walking. Pilgrims may opt to walk portions of "The Way" some days and relax on others. Those who wish to do this, will not qualify for the Diocesan Certificate (we remind here that the certificate should not be the reason for joining this pilgrimage), but in any case, those pilgrims who choose not to walk "The Way", should at least be able to walk between 2 to 3 miles a day. 

NOTE 5: In case one or both of our Chaplains become unable to participate, the pilgrimage will continue to operate and every effort will be made to obtain a substitute Priest(s).
