1. July 25th is the actual Feast Day of our Church's namesake, Jesus's apostle, St. James the Elder. The scallop is the symbol of the Camino. Originating with pilgrims walking to the shore on the Spanish coast where St. James remains were brought off a boat and laid to rest in the

Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. 

2. El Camino de Santiago in English translates to "The Way of Saint James."

In Spain, to receive a Camino certificate you must prove that you walked at least 100km (62.1 miles) on one of the Camino routes. 

3. In 2018, 300,000 "Pilgrims" claimed bragging rights for completing the Camino in Spain. 

At Santiago, we have two routes--from lake Forest Sports Park to Santiago is 4.1 miles; from St. Michael's Abbey to Santiago is 7.1 miles.
