Msgr. James McNamara Pilgrimage Rome & Assisi Retreat
Province of Perugia
You are cordially invited to join in a retreat Fr. Jim will give in Assisi so that we might enter more deeply and prayerfully into the richness of God’s mercy in our lives and in our Church. On a mountain in the Umbrian countryside, in the city of Assisi, a small medieval town that still breathes with the spirit of St. Francis and St. Clare. We will leave on Friday, June 15, 2018 and return to New York on Monday, June 25, 2018.
We will fly from JFK non-stop overnight flight to Rome, once we arrive we will be taken by a modern coach to Assisi. Accommodations will be at Hotel Posta, or for those who wish to have private rooms they will stay at a nearby Casa Papa Giovanni, a retreat house run by the Diocese of Assisi. The retreat will be based on the life and charism of St. Francis in light of living the Christian life today. In the twelfth century St. Francis renewed the Church and inspired countless men and women to devote their lives to God’s service.
