Follow pilgrimage blog: Seminarians embark on 500-mile walk
June 8, 2016
Written By: Anne Marie Cox

Four of our seminarians -- Reed, Ben, Nick and Alex -- are embarking on a journey of a lifetime. They're heading for the famed Camino de Santiago (the Way of St. James) in Spain, where they will walk 500 miles in about a month, ending at the tomb of St. James in northern Spain. 

Why are they walking so far? The camino has many churches, monasteries along the way. Pilgrims walk the path with the hope of growing closer to God. Like a river system, there are many small tributaries, or routes, that feed into larger ones as they eventually come together.

Reed, Ben, Nick and Alex are blogging as they travel, sharing the challenges and discoveries as they journey closer to God. Before they even hit the trail, they've talked about trusting in God and learning that he just may have an adventurous spirit! Bookmark their blog and follow their regular updates here.
