Book ‘At Home’ Assisi Pilgrimage to Sacred Places of St. Francis and St. Clare

by Sister Julie Ann on May 11, 2011

No need for ‘jet lag fighter’ or ‘get packed’ apps for this pilgrimage. Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity are preparing for one of the Franciscan Pilgrimage Program’s customized  experiences May 13-15, 2011. 

The  concept of “spirituality of place”, specifically those that formed Francis and Clare remain at the heart of these days. These sacred places come alive virtually as our Sisters gather at our Motherhouse, a place dear to our own community for over 125 years.

Fr. John Petrikovic, OFM Cap and Sister Patricia Linssen are the official pilgrim guides. A Capuchin Franciscan friar from Butler, PA, Fr. John  leads rituals, prayers, Eucharistic celebrations, and lectures in St. Francis Chapel and in St. Al’s homeroom. Sister Patricia organizes all the details that make an experience comfortably memorable. Motherhouse kitchen staff are planning Italian menus to help accentuate the spiritual for meals.

    I so appreciate our own Motherhouse photo as well as the Basilica of St. Francis. You are so correct: places dear to our hearts!

    Blessings to the presenters and the participants in the IN-HOUSE Assisi Pilgrimage. A few years ago a group of us participated in the in-house one in St. Francis Chapel and there were some of our Sisters actually making the Pilgrimage at that time and we connected with them via phone (speaker). Blessings abounded!

    Once again I went through the pictures and pondered and remembered! Thank you for sharing the “home” sites as well as the Italian sites.

  4. Seeing the pictures and the pilgrims is a wonderfully renewing experience!
