Excerpt from the website:
Thereâ€™s a modern day revival in the age-old habit of pilgrimage, and parishioners from St Josephâ€™s Church in Subiaco, Perth have created their own, Camino Salvado. Compass joins the inaugural pilgrimage for a six day walk from Perth to the Benedictine Monastery at New Norcia. The Camino Salvado follows in the footsteps of Spanish monk, Dom Rosendo Salvado. In the mid-1800s he walked to from Perth to New Norcia many times as he built a unique aboriginal mission, enduring tragedy and hardship along the way. Now a century and half later, 30 pilgrims will explore the modern day appeal of an age old tradition, and learn about the history of Dom Salvadoâ€™s historic journeys.
