Assisi & Rome Pilgrimage

Assisi & Rome Pilgrimage

Start May 1, 2020
End May 14, 2020

Join your colleagues on a journey like no other. A pilgrimage is a sacred journey where your spirit is enlivened and moved as much as your legs. As you traverse the hills of Assisi and the streets of Rome, you will be steeped in the places and stories of our Franciscan family, and enjoy a deeper experience of being Franciscan.

These programs offer you an opportunity to deepen your personal relationship with God through visits to the major sanctuaries associated with SS. Francis and Clare of Assisi. Your life is enriched and transformed through participation in rituals, prayers, Eucharistic celebrations, historical visits and lectures. By journeying through their life stories, these two saints help us to “fix our gaze on God”.

You receive daily input from a professional staff including Fr. Joe Schwab, ED of Franciscan Renewal Center. You will pray, relax and associate with members from other ministries. This is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of the Franciscan values that your ministry embodies. These values are tools for deepening your relationship with God, family, society and all creation.

Hosts: Fr. Joe Schwab o.f.m.

Eligibility: Board members and Executive Directors. Two per ministry. Each pilgrim is permitted to invite a guest.

Ministry Cost: $4500 +/- Each ministry will bear the cost of the pilgrimage for their participants. If a board member would like to cover their cost, they are most welcome to do so. If neither board member, nor ministry can fund their participants, the Province has scholarships available. The cost for guests will be paid by the guest.
