Stages On the Way (The 2023 Holy Week & Easter Pilgrimage for Catholic School Educators)
Monday 3 April – Tuesday 2 May 2023
Walking in the footsteps of Jesus, the first stage of the pilgrimage will embark on an unforgettable organised tour through the Holy Land. The second stage will then take us to Rome and Assisi where we will explore several of the key aspects of our Catholic heritage and tradition. The third stage will see the group walk the final 110kms of the Camino from Sarria to Santiago de Compostela and arrive on Wednesday 26 April 2023, to join fellow pilgrims and celebrate Eucharist in the Cathedral of Saint James. On Friday we will travel (on bus!) to Finisterre to make the journey complete, as James did.
