American Pilgrims announces the 2018 Ribadiso Welcome Service, a volunteer opportunity for members at the Albergue of Ribadiso do Baixo. Volunteering at Ribadiso is a unique experience. Volunteers welcome pilgrims to the albergue, answer questions, provide information about the area and their arrival in Santiago and lend a listening ear. Click HERE to go to the Hospitaleros page for complete information. And if you live in Pennsylvania or Oregon you should know that there are two new chapters: Central Pennsylvania and Southern Oregon. See what's going on in your area and join in!
