The Confraternity of St. James, London is a non-profit organisation that has been helping pilgrims visit the Camino since 1983. Originally founded by six Camino enthusiasts, the confraternity currently has over 2000 members.
The CSJ’s office and library close to Blackfriars bridge in London are open to the public at various set times or by appointment. Here they deliver a wealth of knowledge on the ancient pilgrimage.
They also organise casual meetings for Camino enthusiasts in a wine bar. These events are a great place to learn about the trail from those who have already experienced it. If you have done the Camino before you can attend and share your experience with the community.
If you would like to donate to The Confraternity of St. James please visit www.csj.org.uk. They are also looking for volunteers across a range of disciplines you can find out more here.
