Letter of the Marist Province “Compostela” to the Marist Communities

16/03/2010: Spain

To celebrate the Compostela Holy Year 2010, Santiago is opening its doors to the thousands of pilgrims coming from all parts of the world to the tomb of the Apostle. The Marist Province of Compostela, through its communities in Roxos and in the Colegio Mayor Gelmírez, also wishes to open its doors to all the Brothers and Marist communities who are coming to Santiago during the summer.

The Marist house in Roxos is situated 6 km from the centre of Santiago de Compostela and has single and double rooms. It has an extensive garden, a swimming pool and space for recreation. To get in contact with this residence, you can do it by telephone, dialing 981 53 71 90, or by electronic mail at: suproxos@maristascompostela.org or secroxos@maristascompostela.org

The Colegio Mayor Gelmírez, in Santiago, is occupied up to 30 June; from 10 to 17 July it is booked for a retreat and from 9 to 15 August it is occupied by a group. Outside these dates, it offers single rooms and breakfast (though the kitchen service is not available for other meals). You can contact it by email: supgelmirez@maristascompostela.org and gelmirez@maristascompostela.org or by telephone: 981 58 60 99.

These two houses and communities offer you their hospitality, within what is possible, and offer this service to the Marist pilgrims. By means of the email and telephone contacts indicated you may receive all the information, settle dates and conditions, and make sure details are precise. And, God willing, we can give you the familiarity and closeness you deserve, and help you live this festival of St James as an experience rich in human, cultural, and Christian meaning, and especially in the Marist spirit.

Br. Óscar Martín Vicario, Provincial of Compostela
Br. Tomás Briongos Rica, Superior of the Gelmírez community.
Br. Neftalí González Nava, Superior of the Roxos community.
