In the Footsteps of Saint Augustine
A Pilgrimage to Italy and the Canonization of Blessed Popes John XXIII and John Paul II
Don’t miss this extraordinary experience to travel to Italy and witness the canonization of Blessed Popes John XXIII and John Paul II, under the spiritual guidance of Bishop Felipe J. Estévez of the Diocese of St. Augustine, April 22 – 30, 2014.
This 9-day pilgrimage (including travel time) begins on Day 2 (Wednesday, April 23) with arrival in Milan. The group will remain in Italy’s second-largest city for three nights, attending Mass, and visiting a variety of religious and historical landmarks, before exploring other Italian cities – including a four-night stay in Rome, where pilgrims are free to witness events surrounding the Mass of Canonization on the Feast of Divine Mercy Sunday, April 27. 
Also, a short trip to the city of Assisi is planned on Day 7, as well as Mass at the Basilica of St. Augustine in Rome on Day 8 with time to explore Rome before a farewell dinner that evening. On Wednesday, April 30, pilgrims will depart Rome enroute to Jacksonville.
