Fr Javier, a patron and good friend of the CSJ and Refugio Gaucelmo, is leaving Rabanal after many years of service as Superior of the Monasterio Monte Irago next door to our hostel.  He has been of tremendous support to pilgrims and hospitaleros during his time there and he will be greatly missed.

We wish him all the best in his new role as Procurator General of the Congregation of Sankt Ottilien, which oversees 56 monasteries all over the world. And we look forward to welcoming his replacement!
