Going back to my pilgrimage experience only takes a little invitation – a word, a picture, a story. Then I find myself going to YouTube and remembering the sights and sounds. I went to this site to take a mini-pilgrimage and found myself looking for our Lourdes Pilgrims for this May. Thanks to those who took time to consider the pilgrimage and submit applications.

Congratulations to Christine Knaggs and Don Vogel, who will be spending May 21 – 31, 2014 in Assisi and Rome.

We’ll wait to hear and, perhaps, see them in a yet-to-be-created YouTube view. Please join me in congratulating them and in praying that they have a safe and spirit-filled time as they walk in the steps of St. Francis and St. Clare with pilgrims from other Franciscan Colleges and Universities. Father André Cirino, OFM and Dr. Jean François Godet-Calogeras will lead the Pilgrimage.
