Invocation Pilgrimage to Rome
To mark the Year of Faith the Holy Father has invited "seminarians, novices and those on a vocational journey" to make a pilgrimage to Rome this coming July. There are at least ninety people going from England and Wales, eighty-five of whom have signed up to join our Invocation Pilgrimage. We will be staying together at the Casa del Pellegrino in the Monte Mario district of Rome.
The pilgrimage will include a visit to some of the houses where saints lived in the past, including the Venerable English College, home to forty-four priest martyrs of England and Wales. We will also have a special guided tour of the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel. The highlight of the pilgrimage will, of course, be a special Mass celebrated by our Holy Father Pope Francis.
