The Rome Summer Renewal Program is one of the programs offered by CMSWR house of studies in Rome, the Domus Sanctae Mariae Guadalupe. Open to all final professed sisters of CMSWR’s communities, the Rome Summer Renewal Program has been a successful annual pilgrimage offering presentations on religious life and the Church, the spiritual life and evangelization. In addition to the talks by learned and inspiring prelates and professors, the days include time for prayer and guided tours of historical sites and churches, basilicas, and places where the apostles and saints lived, witnessed to their faith, prayed, and died. Every summer program hosts a blog, recounting the inspirations, blessings, and events. Check out the most recent blogs below.
