Pilgrims from the USA, Rome, Italy
June 27, 2017
Seven Sisters from our four provinces in the USA– arrived in Rome on Monday, June 19, on their Congregational pilgrimage.
Before coming to Rome they had spent two weeks visiting the historical sites of our Congregation in Germany, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Ready to explore the Eternal City, the Sisters enjoy a full program taking them to many of the religious and historical treasures in spite of rising temperatures. The Motherhouse community is delighted to have these visitors and we wish them a blessed time in Rome.
Before Sister Mary Kristin departed for California on June 22, the pilgrims along with their guide, Sister Mary Ann from the Generalate, posed for a photo.
