Franciscan pilgrimage to Rome planned
MISHAWAKA — From Oct. 8-18 the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration and the Conventual Franciscan Friars invite their fellow Catholics in the Diocese of Fort Wayne-South Bend to join them on a pilgrimage to Rome with Sister Agnes Marie Regan and Father Bob Showers, OFM Conv., as tour guides. The group will visit four papal basilicas and receive an audience with His Holiness Pope Francis. The group will also visit Greccio, Italy, and the sanctuary and cave where St. Francis celebrated the first reenacted Christmas. They will then travel to La Verna, where St. Francis received the Stigmata, and spend quality time in Assisi visiting the holy places that were significant in the lives of St. Francis, St. Clare and the early Franciscans. For cost, more information and registration materials call Sister Agnes Marie Regan, OSF, at 574-259-5427.
