Discover Duomo on Annual ‘Green Bay Day’ in Italy

by Sister Julie Ann on May 4, 2009

John Dewane, one of the spiritual directors for priests studying in the Vatican City, is a key player in the yearly planning. Bill Brunner and Brian Romporti, seminarians attending the North American College, also participated in the 2009 event.

When I taught high school, I had a poster of the facade of this duomo in the back of my classroom – put it there on purpose so that I could have something beautiful to look at all day as I taught. I was beyond astonished to discover the Duomo for real when I first came to Italy in 2004 – was lovely “welcome to Italy” for me.

  1. Sister Marie Kolbe,

    Thank you for sharing these pictures with us and for the captions… I like to know what I am viewing!
    I was struck by the vivid colors and the strength of the buildings. It’s no wonder they have endured for centuries!

    Again, thank you for a visual piece of Italy and the Green Bay connection!

  2. I’m grateful that you will soon be joined by two more of our Sisters in Rome, Sister Marie Kolbe. My job is to drive Sister Louise and Sister Adrianna to the Green Bay airport tomorrow. I’m confident that you will provide some enriching experiences for our Sisters before they attend the International Franciscan Superior Conference in Assisi. Peace and all good.

    These pictures were great to see. I can’t believe the details and colors that went into the building of that cathedral. It sure must have been an exciting experience to see in person. There is alot of history there!
