Important Update: Due to the unfortunate events surrounding the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), we have postponed our trip to Italy to September 2020. We will be posting further details in the upcoming weeks!


We invite you to join us as we explore the regions of Tuscany and Veneto in the fall of 2020. We will reflect on the lives of some of the great Italian saints, experience the masterworks of Florence, and explore the intersection of cultures in Venice. We will celebrate daily Mass in historic churches and join in prayer with fellow travelers. We invite you to review the itinerary for further details.
