St. James’ Day is the perfect excuse to gather! While our celebration may be milder than those on the streets of Santiago, it will be fun and will include:

What is St James’ Day and why do we celebrate it?
Sharing of memories of arriving in Santiago
Shell Ceremony for Pilgrims departing on their Camino
Breakfast Potluck
Everyone is invited to this celebration and to share the excitement of new pilgrims setting off on their Camino and wish them Buen Camino. We look forward to seeing

Pilgrims participating in the shell ceremony and sharing their anticipation and excitement with us

Family & friends sharing in the wonder of the Camino and wishing their pilgrims a safe trip
Pilgrims who made Camino’s in the past reconnecting with our chapter, sharing memories, experiences, and encouragement with all
