A Camino Pilgrimage for Episcopalians across Colorado
Have you dreamed of making a pilgrimage walking the Camino to Santiago Spain? This year we have a created an inspiring Camino Pilgrimage open to all Episcopalians across Colorado. On this journey, we will experience the life-changing power of walking the Camino, deepen relationships across the Church in Colorado, and deepen our bonds with the Reformed Episcopal Church in Spain. We will encounter God in the awe-inspiring landscape of Portugal and Spain and witness the power of the Spirit revealed in pilgrims we will meet along the Way.
Our Camino journey will begin in Portugal in the faith-inspiring village of Fátima, before traveling north to join the Portuguese Way, walking the Way to Santiago, Spain. This pilgrimage invites pilgrims to experience their faith like never before.

What can I expect to experience this pilgrimage? This pilgrimage is a perfect opportunity to walk the ancient pilgrimage path from northern Portugal to Santiago, Spain. This inspiring pilgrimage involves physical activity including walking an average of 20 km a day, climbing stairs, and hiking over rocky and uneven ground.
Why is this pilgrimage set for November? Autumn is a great time to walk the Camino when crowds are lower, fall colors are changing, and temperatures are cooler. It is also a perfect time for pilgrims to renew their faith and find new inspiration just ahead of the Advent and Christmas seasons.
What if my congregation is too small to plan a pilgrimage in the future? This pilgrimage is open to lay and clergy Episcopalians from across Colorado and for pilgrims from congregations of all sizes. This Camino journey will be a perfect opportunity to meet and connect with pilgrims from every corner of Colorado and from around the world.
What physical preparation is needed to make this pilgrimage?
Pilgrims from 21 to 82 have made a Camino journey with our leader. Begin a regular practice of walking now and experience the benefits of integrating body, mind, and spirit as an inspiring and faith-filled practice. You will likely return from the Camino in the best shape of your life.
Is this a religious pilgrimage? Walking the Camino de Santiago is rooted in Christian faith and history. This pilgrimage offers a profound invitation to deepen one’s relationship with God, to open to others along the way, and to walk with Jesus each day.
