Marist Alumnus to Share Pilgrimage Experiences

On Tuesday, April 30, Brendan Mooney '71 will speak to students about his experiences as a traveler along the El Camino pilgrimage route in Spain. Mr. Mooney, the uncle of Cara Mooney '15, has walked the Camino several times and last year volunteered as a hospitalero in the hostel of St. Domingo de la Calzada in La Rioja.

Mr. Mooney recently shared some of his experiences in a Globetrotter article. His talk will be designed for students participating in "El Camino and Seville: Traveling in Time," a Marist Abroad spring attachment course coordinated by Dr. Patricia Ferrer of the Department of Modern Languages & Cultures and Dr. Lea Graham of the Department of English. The talk is open to the entire campus community and is sponsored by Marist Abroad, the Department of Modern Languages & Cultures, and the English Department. The event will take place at 9:00 a.m. in the Henry Hudson Room of Fontaine Hall.
