Rome & Assisi: Immersed in Mercy – June 2016
19 June 2016 to 28 June 2016
First Day of our Rome Assisi Pilgrimage: Arrival and Drive to Medieval Assisi
Today everyone arrived safe and sound in the Rome Airport and we drove north to Assisi. We had a great day with Mass at the Church of San Francesco in the monastery. We had free time to explore the city and pray at his tomb. A great Italian dinner and then to bed for a busy day tomorrow.

About the Pilgrimage
This is a marvelous pilgrimage to celebrate the Year of Mercy and to receive all the blessings and graces available in this Jubilee Year. We will visit all the highlights of both Ancient Rome and Christian Rome.
You will enjoy our extraordinary Catholic guide (and a great friend of Steve Ray’s). Watch this video to get a sense of her passion and knowledge as she explains the Sistine Chapel.
We will also visit Assisi which is a walled medieval city of stunning beauty.
