The annual St Joseph’s Camino Salvado Pilgrimage from Subiaco to New Norcia is now taking bookings for 2024.
The pilgrimage is next year being offered on two occasions, including from Sunday 25 August to Sunday 1 September and then again from Sunday 8 to 15 September.
The Camino Salvado is a pilgrimage conducted under the auspices of St Joseph’s Parish Subiaco, following the tradition of the famous Spanish Camino de Santiago from Subiaco to the unique monastery town of New Norcia.
Co-ordinator Graeme Wishart explained that pilgrims walk in the spirit of Dom Rosendo Salvado, a pioneering monk from Santiago in Spain who established the monastery in New Norcia.
“We follow his inspirational journey of 1846 to connect with country and community,” Mr Wishart continued.
“The pilgrimage is an opportunity to travel lightly, to walk free of the daily routines, to meet people, to make friends, to enjoy and celebrate God’s creation,” he said.
“An opportunity too, in the travelling, the conversations and the silences to reflect on the journey of our lives.”
The pilgrimage attracts a variety of people, Christians and non-Christians of all ages, who participate in this unique Australian Camino.
