Join us in Rome for the next Jubilee!

You’re invited to the next Napa Institute Experience: Rome for Jubilee 2025 – Pilgrims of Hope.

We’ll be leading this pilgrimage from April 27, 2025 through May 4, 2025. After that, we’ll have an optional excursion to Assisi through May 9. You’ll find spiritual renewal at every stage, surrounded by a close-knit group of Napa Institute friends.

The Jubilee marks the 1,700th anniversary of the Council of Nicaea, which gave us the Nicene Creed that we pray at each Mass. It also comes at a necessary time, amid war across the world and after the devastation of the pandemic. 

This will be the second Jubilee for Pope Francis. He declared 2015 the Year of Mercy. Before then, the last Jubilee Year was in 2000 under John Paul II, who marked the start of the Third Millenium.

As a pilgrim, you’ll receive daily plenary indulgences, either for your deceased loved ones or yourself.  We’ll visit the four major basilicas – St. Peter’s, St. John Lateran, Santa Maria Maggiore, and St. Paul Outside the Walls. St Paul’s is overseen by James Cardinal Harvey, who will accompany us throughout the trip.

Our guide will be Liz Lev, a famous American tour guide of Rome. We will also have audiences with cardinals, bishops, and fellow Americans. And we’ll travel to Assisi for an excursion, while providing several other alternative excursion options.

And of course, there will be fine dinners and wine to celebrate the Jubilee.

There will be a time of prayer and conversion for each of us. I personally hope you’re able to join us. 

For information about the schedule and to register, contact Taylor Lupica, Napa Institute Experience Manager at,  cell:  720-335-4443, or, alternatively, Jean Jacoby,, cell:  (310) 487-3480.

This will be limited to only 50 participants.  Pricing will range from $10,000-$12,000. The Assisi extension will cost an additional $4,000, approximately.

Please join us for this Jubilee pilgrimage!

In faith,
