The Road to Santiago De Compostela: the ACU Camino Pilgrimage
Published: Wednesday 20th July 2016
Since the 10th century pilgrims have walked from all over Europe to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northern Spain. Following in the footsteps of millions of pilgrims who have completed this walk, the route was first walked by the Apostle St James.
In October 2017 the Directorate of Identity & Mission will offer all staff, family and friends of ACU the opportunity to take a break from everyday routine and join the walking pilgrimage of ‘the way of St James’ through the stunning countryside of northwest Spain’s woodlands and open plains.
This 16-day guided pilgrimage includes six days of structured walking for a total 115 km. Participants will have an opportunity to explore Madrid, Toledo, Santiago de Compostela, Finesterra and many more historical sites, cities and towns. They will discover the culture, art, spirituality, history, architecture and cuisine of Spain as they stride through the countryside with a full support team.
Numbers are strictly limited. To register your expression of interest or for further information, email Carmel Yahl, Executive Officer, Directorate Identity & Mission at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 02 9739 2380. Get in early. This is one trip you don’t want to miss!
