THE ROME EXPERIENCE
Monday, May 24 – Monday, July 5, 2021
Through The Rome Experience, seminarians have the opportunity to pray and to learn at some of the holy and historically significant sites of Christianity, including the Shrine of St. John Vianney in Ars, France, the major basilicas of Rome, the Catacombs, and many more. As a pilgrimage experience, The Rome Experience encourages the seminarians prayerfully to discover the hand of God in his Church and to receive a stimulus for their spiritual lives and ongoing formation.
The Rome Experience is designed to complement existing programs of formation in diocesan seminaries for seminarians who have completed their first year of theology. Seminarians interested in applying must be recommended by their bishops and vocation directors.

2021 TENTATIVE ITINERARY
Rome, “The Eternal City,” attracts millions of visitors each year. While several visits in Rome and its environs are scheduled, seminarians will be strongly encouraged to maintain a spirit of prayer and pilgrimage, remembering that they have come to Rome as future priests to pray and study next to the Chair of St. Peter and the saints, while providing a witness to the Faith.
