" In this upcoming Holy Year we will need all the help that we can get to attend and assist pilgrims, particularly in the summer months, June, July, August and September. And we will accept all those volunteers that wish to contribute in providing a humane and Christian welcome to the expected pilgrims. You may give our e-mail to those interested so that they can tell us when, and for how long, they will be available to help us. We are very sorry that we do not have the means to pay for their accommodation, but we could pay for their meals if D. Jenaro can manage it."

If you are able to volunteer you can send an e-mail to Eduardo Perez at . Please tell him your country of origin, the language, or languages, that you speak, and any particular abilities that may be of significant help to the pilgrims that will be arriving in Santiago next year.It goes without saying that a knowledge of Spanish would be of much value.

You can, of course, write in English if you wish. There are several people in the Pilgrims' office who know the language quite well.

Don Jenaro is a priest who is in charge of the Pilgrims' office; he was a teacher at the Pontifical University in Rome until he reached retirement age. He possesses immense erudition and infinite humility and kindness, and has a way of making things happen and I'm sure that he will take wonderful care of the volunteers.

You can, of course, forward this message to other Santiago list-servs, and I thank you for doing so
