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.

We (Holly and Karen) stayed an extra night in Rome meeting with former colleague, Sr. Jaculin Manders. We got a lesson on Roman public bus system from her.

Today we arrived in Florence by train and got a lesson in Italian train schedules thanks to asking several times... Termine (end of line)? We were hoping we were going the right way. Florence is so lively with people and stores and museums. We walked along and over the Arno River tonight. The view from our hotel looks up at the Duomo!

    • Sep07 Oh my goodness, such a good post! I segrgultd a lot this summer with being jealous of others experiences, like going to World Youth Day, mission trips, or working at Catholic summer camps, and I felt so left out. But the Lord knows just we need. I was surprised with the opportunity to help staff Aggie Awakening towards the end of summer. That weekend, just three short days, renewed my faith in the community of Catholic college students, and most importantly, strengthened my relationship with Him. Thanks for sharing your experience!
