Franciscan Pilgrimage

The Franciscan Pilgrimage brings together students of various faith traditions from Franciscan Institutions across the United States to reflect on and learn from the vision and values of Saints Francis and Clare of Assisi. The Pilgrimage includes time for reflection, study, conversation, leisure, relaxation and visits to sacred Franciscan places in Assisi and Rome.

The New Year in Assisi

Posted by: Student Pilgrims on 1/1/2012

Assisi is beautiful! We are all loving Assisi! You see God's beauty everywhere and you feel the peace and love all over. We celebrated New Year in Assisi and we really enjoyed our time at the square! We visited St. Francis house today and visited the place where he was born and also visited where him and St. Clare were baptized! We are really enjoying the pizza and the pasta and the ice cream here is delicious! I really don't know what to say about Assisi... The city will take your breath away!


We spent 4 days in Rome and we really enjoyed our time there but Assisi is taking over our hearts! Please keep praying for us as we journey more tomorrow!
