Preparation and setting out on a pilgrimage

Preparation and setting out on a pilgrimage

Murray Adams, reflects on the Camino he and his wife, Candice, took from Lisbon in Portugal to Santiago de Compostela in Spain during 2018.  Murray shares the initial desire that drew them to embark on the walk, their preparation and discoveries made along the way.  One such discovery was, that even with the best advice from others, each pilgrim must find their own way of engaging with the Camino experience.

We too are invited to find our own way as we explore and journey on the Erromeria, virtual pilgrimage with Ignatius and our fellow travellers as we celebrate the Ignatian Year.
