CCC have organized 7-day walking pilgrimages along the Camino to the shrine of St James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in Spain and also along the Via Francigena – a lesser known, rare opportunity – to walk the ancient road to St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome.
Pilgrimages are an enriching experience filled with life-long memories, spiritual renewal, and adventure. When people join us on pilgrimage, they are also helping to support the work of CCC to aid California’s most vulnerable residents.
Note: All remaining 2017 dates are at a lower rate of $1,500 double occupancy and $1,800 single occupancy.
