Summer Pilgrimage: Camino De Santiago

Take the next steps in your spiritual life and join us on a pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain. Pilgrims will hike about 130 miles from Ponferrada, Spain to Santiago de Compostela, averaging 12 to 15 miles per day and discover the depth of prayer and reflection along this storied pilgrim path. This pilgrimage is available to any Notre Dame student expressing interest in embodying a spirit of discernment.
