More Canadians ready to serve!

We had a wonderful time in both Fredericton and London, training a total of 24 hospitaleros.  The east coast hospitality was tremendous and we would like to thank Carmelita, Mary and Kevin for providing a home for the Friday night reception, bed and breakfast for the trainers (that would be us!) and the facility arrangements.  We have already had someone posted: Kathleen is now serving in Zamora with Tom, from our west coast training, Val has just received her assignment to serve in Sorges, in the Dordogne, from 15-30 April, 2013 and Doug and Carol will serve in La Coquille in the spring of 2013.  For an up to date list of those serving (and who have served) check it out

The Friday reception in Fredericton. Tapas, paella, bread, wine and tarta de Santiago. 
The conferral on Sunday afternoon in Fredericton, witnessed by the local pilgrim group. The new hospitaleros hail from PEI, and all parts of New Brunswick.

The London trained hospitaleros, from London, Waterloo, Toronto, St. Catherines.

For those interested in improving their Spanish before going to Spain, there are many course here in Canada at colleges, recreation centres, online and also one offered by the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela.  Course description is here.
