Anglicans to build $5M pilgrimage center in Santiago de Compostela

July 29, 2016

Asserting that more Protestants than Catholics make pilgrimages to Santiago de Compostela, an official of the Reformed Episcopal Church of Spain has announced that it is seeking $5 million to construct an Anglican center there.

“There has never been a place for Protestant pilgrims to receive Eucharist” when they complete their pilgrimage, said Rev. Spencer Reece, according to the Anglican Communion News Service. “There are Anglican centers in Jerusalem and Rome, but none in third most holy site on earth: Santiago.”
