Camino Star of the North / Estrella del Norte

     

Click Here to Join the Camino

Have you ever wanted to walk the Camino de Santiago in Spain?  Or to make any of the many pilgrimage walks throughout Europe – a Camino (i.e. The Way) where you might lift mind, body, heart and soul to God to see with new eyes, and be renewed in faith?  We invite you to join us for our first annual Star of the North Camino / Estrella del Norte as a miniature spiritual taste of the Camino journey.  This year we are walking to support our Starlight Campaign renovation projects for the Star.  The pilgrimage registration fee is $50.00 (tax deductable).  This forms part of a three-year plan for the Star to re-shingle the roof, re-cover the exterior face of the Star and remodel our chapel.

Explore the sacred land and waters in and around St. Albert, AB.  Invite family and friends to sponsor your walk on behalf of the Star.  Hold your personal needs, and those of family, friends and communities, in prayer as they support you and you support the Star of the North on this pilgrimage.  Help us reach our goal to raise $30,000 on the Camino way, and $500,000 over three years
