On this trip we will venture in the footsteps of the greatest saints and martyrs of our Catholic heritage. We will experience the history and magnificence of Rome firsthand and explore the most incredible places of Italy.
This trip features five full days in the Eternal City. We will explore Rome’s greatest sites, from the tunnels of crypts and catacombs to the many ancient amphitheaters and early Christian churches.
Florence is the birthplace of the Renaissance. The perennial beauty of this city was accomplished by artists who were deeply inspired by their faith. Their handiwork will inspire in us a deeper love for the Divine.
Our pilgrimage features a day-trip to Orvieto, home to one of Italy’s finest Gothic cathedrals, the Duomo of Orvieto, which serves as a solemn reliquary for the Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena!
For two days we will explore Assisi, following in the footsteps of Saint Francis and Saint Clare. We will learn their stories and pray at their tombs, and come to realize the beauty of holy poverty.
