The Spokane Chapter of American Pilgrims is centered on Spokane, Washington and extends 100 miles in all directions including the Palouse, Northeast Washington, much of the Columbia Basin and Northern Idaho.
Broadly stated, the purpose of the Chapter is to keep experienced pilgrims connected to one another and to foster the Camino spirit among them, as well as to welcome new people to the pilgrim experience.
We plan to accomplish this in a number of ways, such as our celebration of the Feast of Saint James in July of each year, and a variety of social events and Saturday hikes throughout the year. We also are available to mentor future pilgrims, and look forward to serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.
The chapter will be scheduling local hikes, talks, potlucks and more!
These may be listed here but you will want to check the Events calendar for events that may be of interest.
Contact chapter coordinators Kevin Codd, Fran Hailey and Kathy DeRosier at Spokane@americanpilgrims.org for more information or to be added to the chapter email list.
