This October 5th-14th 2019, the United Thank Offering, accompanied by the Episcopal Diocese of Northern Indiana, is thrilled to offer a UTO Pilgrims on the Camino, a pilgrimage that combines portions of walking the Camino with visits to UTO grant sites in Madrid and Northwest Spain.  

This pilgrimage is for walkers and non-walkers alike and is intended to be not only a spiritual adventure but also an opportunity to raise awareness and funds for the planning of an Anglican Pilgrim Centre in Santiago.  The center will be a home for all Christians, especially Anglicans, to receive communion at the end of their travels. 

More details about the UTO challenge grant related to this will be released in coming months.
