Walking in the footsteps of the saints of Tuscany and Umbria 

On Sunday 22nd- Friday 27th October 2023 27 people were led by Fr Andrew on the Parish Pilgrimage to Florence, Siena & Assisi. After a long first day of travelling and sightseeing the pilgrims settled into pattern of tours, the celebration of Mass in beautiful places and free time for their own exploration. Throughout the week they discovered more about the lives of St Catherine of Siena, St Francis and St Clare of Assisi and Blessed Carlo Acutis, as well as many other holy and saintly figures. The group had a beautiful week together and came back full of stories of their adventures and looking forward to the next pilgrimage.

The pilgrim group from across our parishes and elsewhere, gathered at the Hermitage, L’Eremo delle Carceri, on the hill above Assisi.
