Pilgrimage to Italy

Have you ever wanted to visit Italy sometime in your life?

Would you like to walk the streets of Rome? 

Do you want to gaze on the frescoes of Michelangelo in the Sistine Chapel?

Would you like to pray at the tomb of Peter and the Basilica of St. Francis?

Would you like to eat great pasta and drink some fabulous wines?


Here is your great opportunity. Fr. Britto, who lived in Italy for five years and speaks Italian, is leading a pilgrimage-cum-trip to Italy October 1 - 9, 2017. The package includes airfare, breakfast and dinner (with wine), local English-speaking guides, and all admissions to museums and other attractions. We will visit the Eternal City, take a day trip to Florence to enjoy the famous Uffizi art gallery, go on pilgrimage to Assisi, and ride through the magnificent Amalfi Coast. We will be staying at 4-star hotels in Rome and Sorrento. 

If you are interested and would like to find out more please come to our information meeting
