Father Ohno to lead Ignatian pilgrimage to Rome

November 14, 2017


SU Jesuit Natch Ohno, S.J., is leading a pilgrimage from Assisi to Rome this summer. He will be joined by Lisa Dennison, executive director of the Spiritual Exercises in Everyday Life (SEEL).

The co-leaders write: 

“Our pilgrimage will take us from the pastoral hills of Assisi, home of Pope Francis’s namesake, Francis of Assisi, to the pilgrim sites in Rome where Ignatius directed the Society of Jesus. From the rooms of St. Ignatius in the Gesú to St. Peter’s Basilica, we explore the Rome of Scavi, Coliseum, and catacombs to a Papal audience and Pallium mass celebrating the feast of Ss. Peter and Paul. We will pray and celebrate the Eucharist as we explore the wonders of amazing basilicas such as St. Ignazio and St. Peter. There will be ample opportunity to taste many Italian delicacies from pasta to gelato, and of course with some delicious Italian wine to toast the journey together.” 

Sponsored by SU and SEEL, the 11-day pilgrimage takes place June 21-July 1, 2018. To learn more and register for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, visit Ignatian Pilgrimage.
