Bishop Kevin Doran will lead a pilgrimage for young adults (18-30) on the Camino de Santiago from 1 June – 10 June 2022.
Speaking on this pilgrimage experience, Bishop Kevin Doran said, “Young adult pilgrimage is a regular feature of our activity in Elphin Diocese and this will be our third time to do a section of the Camino. In the Spanish countryside with all its cultural and spiritual heritage, our young adult pilgrims walk together in a different space. It is a space where it is not unusual to be a person of faith. Walking with these young people gives me an opportunity to listen to their hopes and concerns. There is a lot of talk these days about the Synodal Pathway on which the Church in Ireland is setting out. Synod is all about ‘walking together’. The Camino allows me to walk with young adults from our Diocese and to listen to their hopes and concerns in very a relaxed environment.”
The package includes flights, 9 nights accommodation with breakfast, 20kg Check-in luggage plus hand luggage, transfers and insurance, pilgrim pack with T-Shirt, Day trip to Muxia.
A minimum of 100km walk is required to obtain the “Compostela“, the official accreditation of the pilgrimage of St. James. Pilgrims will walk the Camino Frances with a starting point at Sarria, finishing in Santiago de Compostela. This distance is approximately 120km in total and will take 7 days, approximately 16 – 20 km per day.
