Retreat in Assisi and visit to Rome
June 15 – 25, 2018
I wish to invite you to a special retreat in the footsteps of St. Francis and St. Clare in Assisi June 15 – 25, 2018. I will give two conferences a day for six days in Assisi with Mass each day in the various Churches. There is ample time for prayer and visiting the holy places. The entire city of Assisi becomes the retreat house. We will be staying at the Hotel Posta in Assisi. We will then spend three days in Rome at Domus Carmelitana not far from St. Peter’s. For further information you can access the brochure at: www.pilgrimages.com/frmcnamara, All arrangements are being made by 206 Tours and you register through them. You can call Chris at 206 Tours: 800 206 8687 or email him at: Chris@206tours.com. I look forward to sharing this with you.
