The Confraternity is a membership organisation and depends on the subscriptions of those members to continue its work in supporting pilgrims and promoting the Via Francigena. By becoming a member you are joining an international community of pilgrims, connected by the Francigena.

On joining, members are issued with a fold-out pilgrim credential, a cloth badge, the most recent edition of the print newsletter and a free copy of The Einsiedeln Itineraries: A Pilgrim’s Guide to Rome in Charlemagne’s Time. The fold-out credential has space for eighty stamps, and you can read more about the importance of the credential here. Our badge identifies you as a pilgrim whilst you are making your journey, as well as being a memento when you have returned. Worldwide postage of these items is included in the subscription fee.

As long as your membership continues, you will receive our regular e-newsletter and print newsletter, and on renewal you are welcome to request a new badge and credential, plus a copy of The Einsiedeln Itineraries. Members also have access to our library.

The membership pack

Members are encouraged to attend the Annual General Meeting and other events during the year to engage with stakeholders and groups involved in the Via Francigena.  The CPR keeps a list of members who have completed pilgrim journeys to Rome. Making a pilgrimage to Rome on foot or saddle, for whatever reason, is a special achievement, and members are encouraged to share their experiences on their return and to inspire and assist those who wish to follow them.

Becoming a Confraternity of Pilgrims to Rome Member 

There is no joining fee. For one and three-year membership subscriptions, membership begins on the date of purchase and expires one or three years from that date.

Becoming a Friend

If you would like to support the charitable aims of the confraternity further, we would encourage you to consider becoming a ‘Friend’ of the Confraternity. Your generous donation would be very gratefully received and used to promote and support pilgrimage and pilgrims on the Via Francigena. In addition, you would receive all the benefits of a lifetime member.
