Texas Gulf Coast (Houston) Chapter

The regional chapter of American Pilgrims for the Texas Gulf Coast is centered on Houston, Texas. Broadly stated, the purpose of this local chapter 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 western Texas Gulf region.

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 page for other events that may be of interest. Contact chapter coordinators Linda Shubert, David Eickhoff and Kathi White at [email protected] for more information or to be added to the chapter e-mail list.
