Italy with the Friars
October 29 - November 8, 2018

Romans say “It Takes a Lifetime” – yes, a lifetime to see all that Rome offers.  We won’t have a lifetime, but our days are packed with the best of Rome, and the best of Italy. 

Fr. Daniel Marie and Br. Joachim from the San Juan Diego Friary invite you to join them on a pilgrimage to the heart of Italy – We’ll visit Rome and Assisi in-depth, and then enjoy the spectacular sights in Venice! 

Our highlights include Daily Mass at many holy shrines, including St. Peter’s Basilica, the Basilica of St. Francis, and the Cathedral in Orvieto – in the Chapel of the Eucharistic Miracle of Bolsena. We’re requesting a visit to the Scavi Excavations – the Necropolis below St. Peters. 

And during our stay in Assisi, we have a brief retreat at Mt. Laverna, where St. Francis received the Stigmata. 

Join the Adventure!
