Students will walk the 640 km pilgrim route taken by Saint Ignatius of Loyola in 1522 from his home in Spain’s Basque country to Montserrat and Manresa. As a pilgrim, the student will be on a 28-day outer journey and an inner journey wherby students will be encouraged to engage fully in this ‘pilgrimage’. Students will walk virtually the same route that Ignatius did, pass through many towns that he did, pray at churches where he did, and marvel at the same natural wonders that he saw.
