The Mormon Society of St. James

MSSJThe Mormon Society of St. James aims to bring together people who like social walking and spiritual fellowship.

We are a Mormon society inasmuch as we have our foundation in friendships first made through the shared Mormonism of certain founding members. All people — Mormon or not, Christian or not, religious or not — are welcome to join. We do not proselytize. Our pilgrimages have been walked by atheists, agnostics, Catholics, Anglicans, Orthodox, and Buddhists.

We find our inspiration in St. James as the patron of all pilgrims and because it was to Santiago de Compostela in Spain that the Society first set its feet.

We are committed to religious tolerance, the cultivation of “holy envy” in the world’s great religious places, and the appreciation, in good company, of God’s beautiful earth.

Notices of walks, meetings, visits, and the annual pilgrimage can be found at our Facebook page.
