Camino de Santiago and Via Francigena – Catholic Charities of California invites you to participate in walking pilgrimages

Catholic Charities of California (CCC) invites you to join a seven-day walking pilgrimage!

CCC have organized 7-day walking pilgrimages along the Camino to the shrine of St James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain and also along the Via Francigena – a lesser known, rare opportunity – to walk the ancient road to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.

Pilgrimages are an enriching experience filled with life-long memories, spiritual renewal, and adventure. When people join us on pilgrimage, they are also helping to support the work of CCC to aid California’s most vulnerable residents.
