Along the Way: A Personal Pilgrim Walk

Sue Ballotti

Due to the COVID -19 pandemic we were unable to have our June 6th Along the Way annual pilgrim walking retreat. In response, we have made our annual walk an independent event to bring the Camino experience into our homes, families & neighborhoods. Due to the poor air quality in September we are extending our time to walk to November 7th! By signing up, you become a pilgrim on your own Camino to walk and reflect on your journey … and by signing up, you will support the Retreat Center.
