Franciscan Pilgrimage to Assisi

Franciscan Farewell

On Sunday, October 30, 2022, the community blessed and sent forth 18 pilgrims on a 10-day pilgrimage to Assisi and Rome, Italy. The pilgrims included Sisters, Covenant Companions, Our Lady of the Angels staff, and their spouses.

At the airport in Rome, the USA-based group met Sr. Magdalena Schmitz and Sr. Emma Sitorus from the General Council of our international congregation and the pilgrimage leaders. The group spent 7-days in and around Assisi, visiting the holy places connected to the lives of St. Francis and Saint Clare, growing deeper each day in love with Franciscan spirituality, and creating a bond with one another. The final three days were spent visiting holy sites in Rome, and a marvelous lunch, prayer service, and photo opportunity at the Generalate, the general headquarters for our international congregation.
