Walking In Love On The Camino Santiago de Compostela

February 4, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm


Walking In Love On The Camino Santiago de Compostela

Mark and Tina love to walk, so a pilgrimage on The Way of Saint James felt like the perfect way to celebrate their 40th anniversary. But they could never have imagined the degree to which they would find themselves surrounded by the love and grace of God every step of The Way. Join us as they share, through images and stories, lessons learned during a 170-mile spiritual journey from Porto, Portugal to Santiago, Spain.


Mark Loomis is a retired elementary special education teacher, husband, father, and grandfather. He took up backpacking after turning 60 and has walked 800 miles of mountain trails in Vermont, Colorado, and California. He discovered long-distance walking as a path to spiritual renewal and a way to feel God’s presence in nature and in other walkers. But he didn’t know that long-distance walking was something he could share with his wife until he learned about The Way of Saint James.

Tina Loomis is a retired school nurse, wife, mother, and grandmother. Always longing for a greater understanding and relationship with our Creator, Tina became an annual participant at Our Lady of Calvary women’s weekend retreats. There, she learned about the Camino Santiago de Compostela and credits OLC with planting the seed that led to the fantastic adventure that she is longing to share.

This program will take place in the upstairs Blue Room and will be limited to 15 participants. Includes lunch.
