Franciscan Pilgrimage Testimonial:
I have had the opportunity to be a pilgrim on three Franciscan Spiritual Center pilgrimages. Each was well done from hotels, food, transportation, and leadership under Mary Erickson and Jon Bouillot. Each, however, had a unique feature making it stand alone. The one to Assisi in 2012 had a time with Sr. Mary Jo Chaves and her love of Francis as well as her wonderful morning/evening mediations. The one to Iona/Ireland was filled with fresh looks at Iona. I had traveled to both places before, but loved this 2013 journey with its times for me to reflect. The 2015 journey to Greece/Turkey had a wonderful sense of pilgrim community. Sr. Anne Amati’s preparation before the trip shined as she shared her learnings through poems, history, and music with the pilgrims. ~ Diana Aldrich
