The St. Louis Chapter of American Pilgrims covers the general area of St. Louis including east-cental Missouri and west-central Illinois.
Broadly stated, the purpose of this local chapter 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, hikes, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.
The chapter will be scheduling local hikes, talks, potlucks, a lending library of Camino related books, and more!
These may be listed here but you will want to check the Events calendar for other events that may be of interest.
Contact Chapter coordinators Joette Reidy and John Flotken at StLouis@americanpilgrims.org for more information or to be added to the chapter email list.

Are you interested in learning more about the Camino?
Consider joining the American Pilgrims on the Camino Facebook group for great dialogue, photos, and a running commentary about the Camino from like-minded pilgrims.
If you are thinking of walking the Camino and are interested in learning more, we can pair you with an experienced pilgrim who can answer your questions on how to prepare and what to expect. Just email us and ask to be connected with a mentor.
