Dust off those walking boots and take some time for reflection and a sense of tranquillity…

Did you make any resolutions for the New Year? Or perhaps you decided that you’d do something new, but haven’t yet decided what that will be? We would like to present you with a very special opportunity for 2012…

CAFOD are encouraging supporters to join together and walk the final 100 miles of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela, on two dates in 2012. By walking in community, you will be able to share the journey and your reflections along the way.

The ‘route of the stars’, named so because it lies beneath the Milky Way, takes pilgrims along the beautiful and peaceful countryside across the north of Spain, ending at the cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. The route has existed for over a thousand years and offers a physical, mental and spiritual challenge to those who take it on.

CAFOD will be supporting groups of walkers who want to do this on two dates, from the 2nd of June and the 15th of September. There will also be a training weekend on the 5th and 6th of May, giving the walkers a chance to meet each other, talk to past pilgrims and plan together. CAFOD will be supporting partakers all the way – as they help CAFOD to raise funds.
