Frequently Asked Questions
Our trip patron is St. James the Greater. Following the Descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, St. James set out for Spain where he preached the good new. Following his missionary work in Spain, St. James returned to his home country and was eventually beheaded in Jerusalem, in 44 AD. His relics were returned to Spain but his head remained in Jerusalem, in the church of St. James. We’ll pay our patron a visit while in Jerusalem!
