Rosarian Academy Teacher Goes on Pilgrimage

Rosarian Academy Teacher on practice hike.

This story was originally posted on It’s about one of our Rosarian Academy teachers who spent her summer going on a 500 mile religious pilgrimage called the Camino de Santiago de Compostela or the Way of St. James. She traveled with her brother Michael. They believe it will take them about 30–35 days. We’re proud of our educators and teachers, both current and former, who “go the extra mile” and fulfill their dreams while serving God.

“Completing the Camino has been on my dream list, and I feel like there have been several signs from God calling me to walk the Camino this summer,” Murphy said. “One of these was in working in fourth grade and discovering that I would be teaching a unit on Europe in the Middle Ages, including medieval religious pilgrimages. I look forward to returning and sharing this experience with my students.”

The Rosarian Academy educates students in early childhood through eighth grade. For more info., visit
