Dear Friends,

We are inviting you on a Pilgrimage to Rome and Assisi—in the footsteps of St. Francis of Assisi. You will be joining the centuries of pilgrims who have visited these sacred places. This pilgrimage is planned for those people who love the Church and want to grow in knowledge and experience of St. Francis. As pilgrims, we will pray and visit sacred sanctuaries. We will attend a Papal Audience with Pope Benedict XVI and celebrate Mass daily including Mass at the tombs of St. Peter and St. Francis. In Rome, we will visit St. Peter’s Basilica, St. John Lateran, and St. Paul Outside the Walls. We also see many historical sites in Rome including the Colosseum, the Roman Forum, Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps, the Pantheon and more.

Of special mention will be our tour of the Scavi (the excavations under St. Peter’s), a tour of the Vatican Museum and our tour of St. Peter’s Basilica. These will be moments that you will always cherish. In and around Assisi, we will visit many important Franciscan sites that most pilgrims never see. We will visit Assisi, San Damiano, Rivo Torto, St. Mary of the Angels, Greccio, La Verna, Carceri, the Basilica of St. Francis, the Basilica of St. Clare and the tomb of St. Francis. You will walk the streets that St. Francis walked in Assisi, a beautiful walled medieval city.

You will stay in first class hotels. I hope that you will decide to join this Pilgrimage. It should be a source of many blessings for you and your family.

Peace and all good things,

Fr. Ray and Fr. Joe
