|Society of Saint Edmund|
The Society of Saint Edmund and The Essex Catholic Community are supporting a group of young people, who departed on Father’s Day, to begin a 135-mile pilgrimage of the Camino (walking between 12 – 18 miles per day). This is the third most important city of pilgrimage after Jerusalem and Rome. The Camino de Santiago in English is the “Way of Saint James” and is a network of pilgrimages leading to the shrine of the apostle of Saint James The Great in the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Galacia in northwestern Spain. Members of this pilgrimage are praying for unity and for the specific needs of fellow parishioners.
