ITALY

If you feel called to St. Peter’s, Siena, Assisi, or even a Wednesday audience with the Pope, then journey with us to Italy. Come see the Church alive and active in Pope Francis and the Vatican while surrounded by nearly 2000 years of Church history.




Immersed in sacred art & music, architecture, food and history, a pilgrimage in Italy is a thorough spiritual experience that will engage all your senses.

Rome

Settled above the very remains of St. Peter, for 2000 years the Catholic Church has continually been a beacon of light to the world from this tiny city-state in Italy.

One of the first churches built in the honor of Mary, St. Mary Major was built just after the Council of Ephesus in 431. It receives the title “Major” because it is the largest Marian church in Rome.

St. John Lateran is the oldest church in the western world and is the Cathedral of the Pope as Bishop of Rome and the Ecumenical Mother Church of the Roman Catholic Church, being consecrated in the year 324.

In 386 Emperor Theodosius began construction of the Basilica over the site of the Apostle’s grave. Much of the structure today is a result of a massive reconstruction project in the early 1800s after a negligent roofer started a fire that led to nearly the entire structure being destroyed.

The Catacombs were used as a place for Christian burial in the first three centuries before the legalization of Christianity in the Roman empire. There are over 40 scattered across Rome, many of which you can visit and descend into these cities of the dead where persecuted Christians gathered for worship.

Italy

One of the most peaceful locations in the world, Assisi draws you into the spirituality of St. Francis and St. Clare set in the breathtaking Umbrian countryside that shows the beauty of God in nature.

In Siena witness the miracles of incorruptible St. Catherine of Siena and consecrated hosts that through a Eucharistic miracle have remained preserved for over 300 years.

At a Mass in 1263, a priest having doubts about the Real Presence in the Eucharist elevated the host during the consecration and to his wonder blood began to drip from the host on his hands and on the corporeal. The miracle was confirmed by Pope Urban IV. That corporeal is still preserved for public veneration in the Orvieto Cathedral.

Did you know that San Giovanni Rotondo is the second-most visited Catholic Shrine after St. Peter’s? The tomb and shrine of St. Padre Pio are there and pilgrims travel there to venerate this mystic who was known for his deep devotion to God, care for the sick, and supernatural gifts including the Stigmata.
Turin is home to Church devotions both ancient and modern. The Shroud of Turin and the shrine of Blessed Pier Giorgio Frassati draw Catholics from around the world to come and explore their faith deeper.
