More Canadians on their way to Spain

We had another terrific group in Victoria this past weekend, from Winnipeg, Oregon, Vancouver, Victoria, Portland and the Gulf and San Juan Islands. Many great discussions, lots of laughter, good food and always a stimulating exchange of information ensured that everyone now feels confident about returning to Spain or France to serve the pilgrims on their way to Santiago. Thanks to Joerg for taking so many photos and we wish him and Julie "buen camino" as they go off to serve in Estella in June. As hospitaleros this will be a very different camino. We are all very excited for them. For a list of others serving this year, please click here.
