Camino Francisco 2016

Camino Francisco/Geraldton Diocese

This year's Geraldton Diocesan Camino San Francisco pilgrimage is set to go for August 27 and 28.

Last year, 30 people were elated with the two-day camino walk from Our Lady of Ara Coeli Church Northampton to St Francis Xavier's Cathedral Geraldton via Nabawa and Nanson.

This year's Camino will be equally elating, starting from St James Church Kojarena to St Francis Xavier's Cathedral Geraldton via Tibradden, Ellendale Pool, Walkaway and the Greenough Hamlet.

Unlike last year's walked camino, the 2016 Camino San Francisco will take the form of cycle.

The Camino San Francisco focuses on the world famous heritage of Monsignor John Hawes as well as local historical places.

Fr Robert Cross, who initiated the Camino in 2015, said that the Camino was about celebrating and owning our heritage and bringing it "alive".

He said, "Heritage and culture is about identity. It tells us who we are, where we have come from. It is never static, always evolving."

Given the success of the 2015 Camino, the growing popularity of cultural heritage tourism, and cycling, Fr Robert expects places in this year's Camino to fill quickly and urges people to register as soon as possible to ensure their participation.
