ANNUAL PILGRIMAGE TO SANTIAGO DE COMPOSTELA - 17TH APRIL 2017

 

PilgrimagePoster2017 jquery lightbox conflictby VisualLightBox.com v6.1

 

One of the remotest towns in Western Europe in the most westerly part of Spain, Santiago has been a goal of pilgrimage for over a thousand years. All this time people have travelled here by foot, by horse, by bicycle, and now by car and by coach following the historic trail that was finally recognised in 1987 by the council of Europe as its first European Cultural Route. The journey was long and often arduous - but century after century pilgrims have kept coming on a journey of discovery not only of this historic and beautiful region of Spain but also of themselves, seeking to allow God a space in which, amidst the very physical business of travelling, he may be able to reach out to us and we find new glimpses of him.
“Whoever goes to Saint James and not to the Saviour, visits the servant and misses the master”.
During our pilgrimage there will be daily acts of worship reflecting the different Christian traditions from which Pilgrims come..
