About this trip

Dear Friends,

It is my pleasure to invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela by the French Way. This twelve (12) day journey through France into Spain will take us to beautiful, historic, and religiously significant locations that are sure to raise our hearts and minds to authentic and unexpected encounters with our God and so many Saints in these beautiful countries. Over the course of the pilgrimage, we will walk nearly seventy-five (75) miles as we enter this portion of the Camino, which makes it a truly unique experience.
A pilgrimage is a microcosm of life, our journey towards heaven. Each of us will endeavor to make this pilgrimage for our own reasons, but what God will offer us on this journey will far surpass our own designs. I do hope you will prayerfully consider this opportunity to take a pilgrimage of faith in prayer, meditation, and community with us. As space is limited, reservations should be made as soon as possible.

With the tenderness, compassion, and mercy of the loving Savior,

Fr. Dalton - frdalton@stphilipapostle.org
