One month until Santiago Camino Conference

In just 4 weeks I’ll be presenting a talk in Santiago de Compostela on our own Pilgrim Trail® and the Camino Salvado™. There will be other guest speakers from all round Europe, but only one from Australia! I am told by the organizers that because of our strong connection to Rosendo Salvado who entered the monastery in Santiago, that the media in Galicia are very interested in our activities and what we have created here in Western Australia. So if the Aussie $ continues to decline, perhaps we should all start  brushing up on our Europena languages as more pilgrims from that part of the globe come to walk our Pilgrim Trail.

On another happy note, Holy Cross College students have been walking the Pilgrim Trail and all of their year levels from 7 – 12 will have done some of the pilgrim trail this year! They are already planing for next years walks. Well done to all staff and students who have made this possible and done such a great job.

I’m currently working on a book of reflections for the Camino Salvado which we hope to have ready for early in 2015. It’s hoped that it will be a useful resource book for school students who are considering walking the Pilgrim Trail. Watch this space!

Rosendo Salvado – Ways of Telling

Dom Salvado

The Benedictine Community at New Norcia, as a part of the Bi-Centennary celebrations of the birth of Rosendo Salvado, are holding a two day symposium at the State Library on the 13th & 14th Novemeber 2014. This will be a wonderful chance to experience what it was like for the early settlers and the Indigneous folk who’d been here for so long.
