Pilgrimage with Creatio
Nearly all faiths have pilgrimage as part of their tradition, and Christian pilgrimages are among the most popular (perhaps because they work!).
Many of our staff and guides have been on pilgrimages either solo or as part of a group. Our founder Ricardo Simmonds led a small group on a 1,100 mile pilgrimage from Rome to Krakow for World Youth Day 2016. Pilgrimage is integral to Creatio’s mission and adult formation.
Creatio Pilgrimages combine the physical aspects of an Adventure Trip with a heightened sense of spirituality. Our pilgrimages range from long weekend walks to New Mexico’s historic El Santuario de Chimayó, or a week (or longer) to Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
Pilgrimage is especially good for those seeking to deepen or rediscover their faith. Walking quiets the noise of life and helps us listen for the “still, small voice” of God.

The Way of St. Francis, or the Via Francigena, follows the 150-mile path that St. Francis of Assisi would have likely traveled on his way to Rome. Pilgrims will walk through the stunning Italian countryside, stopping along villages and conversing with locals as they make the same journey that St. Francis made almost 800 years ago.
Walk with Creatio in the Way of St. James as we spend two weeks on pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Walking the Camino interrupts the routine of daily life and helps cultivate a deep interior silence while strengthening your relationship with God and others.
Let us create a completely custom experience for you or your group. All our Experiences exist thanks to motivated people seeing a need and wanting to help. Whether that need was within themselves, their communities or around the world, Creatio can help you turn your idea into a reality.
El Santuario de Chimayó is a a Catholic pilgrimage site in Northern New Mexico. Enjoy prayer and reflection time, unparalleled natural beauty, and fun with your fellow “peregrinos” (pilgrims) as you make the trek!
