Domus Winter Program
December 18, 2022 – January 11, 2023
Three Weeks: One week in the Holy Land and two weeks in Rome

Departure by air from Rome to the Holy Land on Thursday, December 22 and return to Rome on December 29 (that is, seven nights and eight days) with a priest-guide from Opera Romana Pellegrinaggi. ORP organizes pilgrimages, not tourist trips. There will be Holy Mass every day and the reading of scripture at various holy places. Visiting the Christian sites will be accomplished by bus and on foot!

Then returning to the Eternal City by air, you will spend December 29, 2022 to January 11, 2023 in Rome with Sister M. Regina Pacis, FSGM. The theme of the program in Rome is “Highlights of the History of the Catholic Church from the Death of Peter to the Present.”
