PILGRIMAGE OF COMPASSION

2013

The centerpiece of Compassionate San Antonio in 2013 was the Pilgrimage of Compassion. Twenty-three organizations from all over the city hosted events and invited the public to learn about how they live in compassion in the Heart of Texas. We estimate that at least 3,000 people were exposed to Compassionate San Antonio and signed our 6’x3′ vinyl banner affirming the Charter for Compassion.
