PLEASE NOTE:  As from 13/12/2020 all funds collected from CCIM monthly gatherings will be donated to a not for profit alburgue along the Camino de Santiago to help financially support them through Covid.

My intention is to keep the spirit of the Camino alive within our hearts, and they are a great opportunity to get to know each other, share our Camino stories and  hopefully inspire others to embark on their own pilgrimage to Santiago de Composela. - Joanne Cashman
