Lenten Pilgrimage to Rome with Dr. Sri!

March 3-11, 2022

Please click HERE to request more information.

Imagine starting Lent venerating the instruments of Christ’s Passion throughout Rome:

the pillar upon which Christ was scourged, the wood of the Crossthe nails driven into his body, the crown of thorns placed on his head, the sign placed above Christ’s Cross. We also will pray near Veronica’s veil, Longinus’ spear which pierced Christ’s side and other relics of the true Cross. 

We will prayerfully meditate on Christ’s Passion while ascending on the Holy Stairs, the very steps Christ walked up and down in Pilates’ Praetorium.

 

We will visit some of the ancient  “Station Churches” — special churches appointed to open their doors for Mass and veneration of relics for the people of Rome, who have been going from one station church to the next each of the 40 days of Lent since at least the 500s AD.

Are you longing to be on pilgrimage again?  Do you miss being able to travel?

After 15 months of international lockdowns, I’m excited that Rome has been welcoming international pilgrims again. My daughter, in fact, is there right now, and I myself will be leading a private tour there later this month.

I am looking forward to hosting a pilgrimage to Rome, which is open to anyone interested.

Watch Dr. Sri Describe the Pilgrimage to Rome

Travel in a Smaller Group: Experience More!

Many trips to Rome take place in large groups that are moved around in tour buses. But we travel in a small group, enabling us to walk the beautiful streets of Rome, enter more deeply into prayer and visit many more sites not on the typical tourist itinerary.

Go Deeper in Your Faith

Personal guided tours by Dr. Sri through each site make the churches, saints and art come alive for our faith today.

Stay Two Blocks from the Vatican

Pray at the tombs of the martyrs and saints who shaped our Catholic faith.
