There have been some changes in the steps to take when applying to serve at an albrgue overseen by HOSVOL. The coordinator in Spain is now Manual Oliva. Manuel wants all initial applications for service (in a HOSVOL albergue) to come through Tom Friesen firstname.lastname@example.org). An application from you will consist of an email to Tom, with the choice of month that you are free to serve and a choice of albergue from the HOSVOL list. Tom will forward on your information (application and passport photo page) including your offered time (first or last half month). If you are restricted to a specific first or last half of a month, please do indicate this. And if you don’t have a preference for an albergue you could perhaps indicate city or rural. With this kind of information, it makes it easier for Manuel to respond and offer you a specfic albergue.
Also, for this summer, two albergues, which are usually very busy will be posting for shorter periods of time.
Estella will change hospice every Saturday in July, Aug, Sept, so only serving 1 week, not 2.
Ponferrada will have 10 day postings in July, Aug, Sept.
