This Sunday a group of 30 people from our Cathedral community will set off to walk the Camino de Santiago.
The Camino is an ancient pilgrimage route to the Cathedral of St James in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The remains of St. James the Apostle were said to be enshrined here and today, the Camino is regarded as one of Europe’s most important religious pilgrimages.
Our pilgrims will set off from Sarria, in the Spanish Province of Lugo, led by our very own Cathedral Dean, Canon Anthony O’Brien. Many had no previous walking experience before beginning their practice walks 9 months ago, but will walk a total of 120km over six days.
They’ll be eating, lodging and of course walking together each day, and we’ll be sharing their progress along the way over on our facebook page. Visit and like www.facebook.com/liverpoolmetrocathedral to see how they get on.
