Holy Week Pilgrimage in Rome

March 25-April 2, 2018


Imagine yourself...

in the middle of St. Peter's Square, anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Pope.  It's Easter Sunday morning, and you're about to celebrate Christ's Resurrection with thousands of pilgrims from around the world! 

Throughout the week, you've walked through the streets of Rome, experiencing the sights, sounds, and smells of the Eternal City. You've prayed in Assisi, climbed up the "Holy Stairs," knelt before the Passion Relics on Good Friday, pondered the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel, and now, you've done something that millions before you have done - you have become a pilgrim.
