Next October 1 and 2, the Teresian Association makes its annual pilgrimage to Covadonga following the desire of Pedro Poveda, its Founder, to offer to the Santina –Our Lady of Covadonga– the fruits of life and mission harvested during the year.

chorrón 1The Votive offering of Covadonga is, in the words of Maite Uribe, President of the TA, “a gesture of presence, prayer, gratitude and commitment that the Teresian Association has been making since 1934, year after year, and which we always renew with huge joy and hope.” The motto of the pilgrimage If you only knew what God is offering... coincides with the Letter of the Year 2022, as announced in April.

Every year, the people who make the offering before la Santina represent the four continents where the Association carries out its mission; of its members, collaborators and young people who live the charism of Poveda in their day to day from different realities and commitments.

On this occasion, the people who will make the offering come from the Democratic Republic of Congo, the Philippines, Mexico, Germany, and Spain.
