Walking the Camino to carry the intentions of others who aren’t walking this year – send yours to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Coronavirus epidemic has ruined the plans of many pilgrims who hoped to walk to Santiago this year. The Camino was closed for some months but gradually as restrictions are eased in Spain and in other countries pilgrims will walk the Way again.
If for any reason you can’t walk this year veteran pilgrims Johnniewalker, Stephen, Kate and Sean will carry your thoughts and prayers with them in August 2020 when they walk both physically and virtually from Saint Jean Pied de Port to Santiago.
They are making this pilgrimage to rebuild confidence in the Camino and to carry with them the intentions of others.
THOUGHTS, PRAYERS, HOPES & INTENTIONS
No matter what you believe or what faith you follow, or none, the pilgrims will carry your messages, prayers and hopes every step of the way to Santiago and they will be prayed for at Mass every day.
Send yours to: email@example.com
