The Camino is a popular walking pilgrimage route in northern Spain that ends in Santiago. The main destination is to the tomb of the apostle, St. James, who is buried in the Cathedral. For centuries, pilgrims have traveled this route in search of forgiveness, healing, and answers to any number of other prayers. Each day on the Camino consists of about 10-18 miles of hiking, and pilgrims stay in family-run albuerges (hostels) along the way. This is a true pilgrimage experience!
The Diocese is teaming up with Verso Ministries for this pilgrimage. Pilgrims can either travel together from South Bend or travel on their own to Spain to meet up with the group. We will take things from there! Well, except for the hiking part... you will still have to do that.
Thank you to the Bon Secours Young Adult Ministry for funding the formation aspects of this pilgrimage!

Bishop Rhoades is leading a diocesan pilgrimage to World Youth Day! The official WYD age range is 16-35 years old, so it's really World "Young Adult" Day.
Embark on this epic journey to gather with Pope Francis and a few million of our brothers and sisters in Christ from around the world. Unlike usual, WYD is taking place in the winter instead of the summer, in order to avoid the rainy season in Panama.
Note that the registration period has been extended and Bishop Rhoades is providing scholarships to reduce the cost of the WYD pilgrimage by $500!
