Pilgrimage to Umbria, Italy
"In the Footsteps of the Syrian Hermits, St Benedict, and St Francis of Assisi"
6th - 11th October 2016
We shall be staying at the Abbey of San Pietro in Valle was founded upon a Syrian Hermitage of the fifth century. The site also contains a wonderful church in which we would hold our services. The Abbey is now a hotel, which nonetheless has not lost its monastic ambience, positioned as it is in a secluded, strategic and majestic valley pass in the south of Umbria.
From the Abbey we would visit some of the spiritual sites of the surrounding area. The rich spiritual history of Umbria weaves together the traditions of Syrian hermits (the 8th century cave-hermitage of "L'Eremo della Madonna della Stella."), St Benedict of Nursia (480 – 543/7AD) (the Basilica of San Benedetto, Norcia) and St Francis of Assisi (1181/2 – 1226AD) (Sacro Speco, nr. Narni). We would spend our final day in Assisi itself. For further information read the information pack below or contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
