Each year over 197,000 people from around the world complete the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, with Canada contributing 6700 pilgrims.
Last October, CFUW (Milton and District) members Valrie Ewan and Valerie Nelson qualified to be proud members of the Canadian Company of Pilgrims, having completed El Camino Portugues, starting in Valenca, Portugal and ending, 128 kms and 6 days later, at Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
It’s a journey not to be taken lightly, one of deep introspection, endurance, mental stamina and being oblivious to aspects beyond their control such as the weather and where they would rest their weary bodies each night!
At February’s General Meeting both Valrie Ewan and Valerie Nelson will take us on their epic journey, sharing hard and entertaining facts of their once in a lifetime pilgrimage.
Join us at 7:30 pm on February 1, 2024 – Hugh Foster Hall, Milton.
