May 13-22, 2016
The Franciscan Friars of the Atonement invite you to participate in a pilgrimage to Italy for the Jubilee Year of Mercy from May 13, 2016 to May 22, 2016. Attend daily Mass in some of Italy's most special holy places, including Rome, Assisi and Padua, and receive a Papal Blessing. This trip includes airfare from New York, first class accommodations, sight-seeing with a bilingual guide on private motor coach. Daily breakfast buffet and most meals are included (based on itinerary).
The theme of the Jubilee Year of Mercy is "Merciful like the Father." Pope Francis has said, "We are all sinners, but God heals us with an abundance of grace, mercy, and tenderness….Let the Church always be a place of mercy and hope, where everyone is welcomed, loved, and forgiven." Through this special pilgrimage to Italy, so rich in our Christian and Franciscan roots, we can experience the hope of God's mercy as the early faithful and the saints did, revitalize our faith and prepare for the New Evangelization, to go forth to live and proclaim the mercy of the Gospel.
