The Way of St. James
Recently, seniors from Saint Peter Parish in Merchantville filled a bus for a trip to Ventnor to “Follow the Way of Saint James on the Road to Life,”. The event was sponsored by Vitality Catholic Healthcare Services, as a way to celebrate and support the health and well-being of parents and grandparents. Starting at Saint James Church for morning prayer, the group of 100 proceeded to the boardwalk and walked 1.5 miles to Margate’s Blessed Sacrament Church, praying together along the way. Dating back to medieval times, The Camino de Santiago (Way of Saint James) is a network of pilgrims’ paths that end at the shrine of Saint James in the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain, where it is said that the saint is buried.
