Pilgrimages

Assisi, Italy – Home of St. Francis

The two week faculty and staff Assisi Pilgrimage takes place every summer. The pilgrimage was established by our former president, Fr. Walter Dolan, O.F.M. so that not only the friars, but the faculty and staff would have a deeper appreciation of the Franciscan Charism and be collaborators in living out and passing on the Franciscan heritage and tradition, and the values and ideals which are essential elements of the life and work of the Padua Franciscan community.

The Franciscan Pilgrimage Program is sponsored by the Franciscans of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary Province, Pulasky, Wisconsin.
