Hundreds of people from Kilkenny have over the years walked the way of St. James to Santiago de Compostela.
The recent film ‘ The Way’ has touched the lives of people and pilgrims throughout the world who seek to find a deeper meaning to life. On Sunday July 24th you are invited to join with those who have walked the Camino of St. James for a reflective walk through Jenkinstown Park. All will meet at the car park of the church at 3 pm for an introduction to the world famous walk of ‘the way’. As Monday July 25th is the feast of St. James of Compostela it will be an opportunity to reflect at different stages of the walk on the life of St. James and the world famous pilgrimage. The youth pilgrims who will travel to Medjugorje in August will join in the walk. The walk in a relaxed manner will be based on the different stages of the walk on the Camino and will give those who have not yet done the Way of Santiago an opportunity to hear and experience in a small way the spiritual significance of the walk. The walk takes about one hour and will end at the Round Stone House with a short prayer service for those who are seeking to find Peace and Reconciliation in life. The reflections will be led by Fr. Willie Purcell, walkers from Santiago de Compostela and the Medjugorje youth group. All are welcome.
