North Texas Chapter

The North Texas Chapter of American Pilgrims serves the greater Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Area and the surrounding region. The purpose of local chapters is to keep members connected to the Camino and to introduce new people to the phenomenon. We plan to accomplish this in a number of ways, such as social events, walks, mentoring future pilgrims and serving as a local host for hospitalero training through American Pilgrims.

  • To offer opportunities for local pilgrims to gather and hold events related to the Camino.
  • To mentor future pilgrims, promote the pilgrimage and American Pilgrims through social gatherings.
  • To serve as a local host for hospitalero training in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metropolitan Area.

The chapter will be scheduling walks, talks, potlucks and much more! These will be listed here, but you may also want to check the Local Events Calendar for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Linda Loughry and Joe Zarcaro at [email protected] for more information.

Scheduled Events
Potluck and Camino Talk
Saturday, June 23, 2018, 6:00 - 8:30 PM

The North Texas Chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino invites you to a potluck dinner and Camino talk on June 23rd (Saturday) from 6:00 to 8:30 PM at the home of Lynette and Issac Jayaraj. The specific address will be provided upon receiving your RSVP to [email protected]. To jump-start our Camino talk, we will view a short inspirational video, which Issac and Lynette picked up in Santiago after their Camino walk last year. It's often hard to "unpack" our thoughts, lessons learned and our excitement about our Camino. Maybe this gathering will help us do just that. Those of you who haven't walked yet, please join us and bring your questions and learn even more about the Camino de Santiago. Please RSVP so we can know how many to expect. Bring your favorite dish to share and your favorite drink. We hope to see you there. Linda Loughry, Joe and Agnes Zarcaro

Potential mentors should provide us with your name, ZIP code and a brief rundown of your experience, including walking or cycling, which route and when.
