Jonh responsible for the idea, welcoming pilgrims
The Confraternity of St James in the UK and the Irish Society of the Friends of St. James supported and helped develop the idea that volunteer pilgrims could come to Santiago to live and work for two weeks to provide such a service. The aim is to welcome every pilgrim individually and to provide information and support to English speaking pilgrims. This new initiative is timely because although overall the number of pilgrims arriving in Santiago so far this year has grown as usual by around 6%, the growth in English speaking pilgrims is exponential.
