Dublin, Ireland, Aug 22, 2018 / 10:30 am
Participants in the World Meeting of Families have been invited to walk the "Dublin Camino," a seven-church "Pilgrim Walk" throughout the city, sponsored by the Archdiocese of Dublin.
The event, which is running from Aug. 18-25, is aimed at making the themes of the World Meeting of Families accessible to everyone, even those not attending the pastoral congress or other large events.
Pilgrims can pick up a free "Pilgrim Walk Passport" at any of the seven churches along the route, each marked with a banner identifying them as an official stop along the way, and they can be visited any order.
Like those making the ancient Camino de Santiago de Compostela through Spain, pilgrims in Dublin receive a stamp at each of the different churches, and a final seal on the certificate page of their pilgrim passport, marking the completion of the journey.
