Husband. Father. Backpacker. Pilgrim.

Kevin Donahue began walking pilgrimage routes in 2019, joining the footprints of pilgrims seeking places and people to inspire questions and enlighten answers about faith, hope, and love. His passion for these historic footpaths and reflections from his journeys form the basis for his first book, Sacred Steps: A Pilgrimage Journal.

In his second book, The Pilgrims’ Table, Donahue takes on the role of storyteller, blending tales from pilgrims with his own experiences along the Camino de Santiago and Via Francigena. Drawn from authentic experiences, The Pilgrims’ Table is a heartfelt look at the transformational power of pilgrimage as seen through the eyes of five pilgrims from across the world, who find themselves joined together for one memorable dinner.

When he’s not on pilgrimage, Kevin hosts the Sacred Steps Podcast, streaming on Apple, Spotify, YouTube, or your preferred podcast app.

Kevin lives in Florida with his wife, son, and their two beagles: Otis and Larry.


At the crossroads of history and faith, a reluctant pilgrim embarks on a modern pilgrimage along the world’s most revered footpaths. Tracing history’s footsteps, his experiences inspire questions and enlighten answers to the eternal questions of faith, hope, and love.

Brought together by fate for a memorable dinner, five pilgrims recall their emotional journeys along Spain’s Camino de Santiago. Powerful and moving, The Pilgrims’ Table is a heartfelt look at the transformational power of pilgrimage.


Walking virtually alongside pilgrims and authors, the Sacred Steps Podcast explores the world’s most revered footpaths, connecting a community of pilgrims from across the globe. From the Camino de Santiago through Spain to the Via Francigena across Europe to Italy, the podcast features updates and first-hand accounts from the footpaths of pilgrimage.

A companion to the book Sacred Steps: A Pilgrimage Journal by Kevin Donahue, the podcast also introduces several lesser-known journeys, such as England’s Pilgrims’ Way to Canterbury and the California Missions Trail in the United States.
