How sweet! First there was a post-pilgrimage baptism, now a post-pilgrimage wedding...I wonder if there will ever be a post-pilgrimage funeral ;-)

Heaven knows we have had far too many pilgrim deaths on the Camino this year.

marriage

When working as a hospitaleros in Rabanal during May 2 pilgrims actually got married in the church. They had already had the civil ceremony but wanted also to have the religious service. The service was attended by pilgrims. A great event for the Camino.
