The Alamo chapter of American Pilgrims is based in San Antonio, TX and encompasses the boundaries of San Marcos to the north, Brownsville to the south, Del Rio to the west and Schulenburg to the east.
The purpose of local chapters is to keep members connected to the Camino and to introduce new people to the phenomenon. We plan to accomplish this in a number of ways, such as social events, walks, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a venue for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.
- To offer opportunities for local pilgrims to gather and hold events related to the Camino.
- To mentor future pilgrims, promote the pilgrimage and American Pilgrims through social gatherings.
- To serve as a venue for hospitalero training in the San Antonio region.
Contact chapter coordinators Susie K. McCalla and Mary S. Forman at Alamo@americanpilgrims.org for more information.
We invite anyone living in the greater San Antonio area who is interested in our chapter's activities and events to sign up for our chapter email list to receive the latest announcements, invitations, and newsletters.
