Italy Adult Pilgrimage: Instruments of God’s Peace

A St. Francis 12-Day Pilgrimage to Florence and Assisi, led by The Reverend Allen Pruitt and The Reverend Joan Kilian

Francis of Assisi is remembered as a peacemaker for his love of the whole creation, his ministry of service, and work for church reform. This pilgrimage will explore these themes of St. Francis’ life and ministry, along with his counterpart St. Clare, and consider how we experience inward peace and build a more peaceable world.

Begin by understanding the medieval world of Francis and Clare with a visit to Florence where you’ll learn about the medieval history of the city and take in its fantastic collection of European art. This learning continues with a short visit to the charming Tuscan hill town of San Gimignano before continuing to the hills outside of Assisi where we’ll stay for the duration of the pilgrimage. Here we focus on Saint Francis and Saint Clare by visiting sites connected to their ministries and taking in the natural bounty of the Umbrian countryside through eating local food, short walks in nature, and visiting producers of wine, cheese, and other agricultural products.

Those wishing to extend their trip have the option of spending additional time in Rome before returning to the United States. Click “Learn More and Register” for itinerary, costs, and registration.
