After landing in Rome on June 18, we'll take a lovely scenic tour to the Italian region of Umbria to the charming town of Assisi; famous of course for its association with Saints Francis and Clare.
This town is home to windy little streets, ancient buildings and the Santa Maria degli Angeli (Basilica of St. Mary of the Angels), which is one of the largest Christian sanctuaries in the world, and a stop along our way.
One of the blessings of our WINE & Shrine pilgrimage is that our good friend Joan Lewis will be joining us! Joan is a wealth of knowledge about all things Italian. So let's take advantage of her wisdom! Here's a quick little video from Joan talking about where we'll be a month from today!

Today, pray to St. Clare and St. Francis and ask them to help us prepare in this, often crazy and hectic month of May, to experience the Peace of Christ anew when we are in Assisi next month.
Looking forward to journeying with you!
