The Walk of St. Jose Anchieta
A group of 3 seminarians and 2 young people did the traditional “Steps of Anchieta” from January 4th-6th. It is a pilgrimage that is more than 100km between the cities of Victoria and Anchieta, within the state of Espiritu Santo. This walk recalls the same one done by St. Jose Anchieta who faced the sun and the sea while walking along the coast with only the glory of God and the salvation of souls in mind. This year they brought a beautiful chasuble, made by the mother of one of the seminarians, to the National Shrine of St. Jose Anchieta. Fr. Cesar, the Rector of the Shrine, received the pilgrims and the gift with great joy.
