    The Lord give you peace.

    Pope Francis calls us as Catholics to promote the culture of encounter. One way Franciscan University does that is through pilgrimages that take us outside the confines of our daily lives.

    Archbishop Bernard Hebda and I invite you to join us on a pilgrimage to Italy where Christ will meet us in unexpected ways if we are open to his presence in each other and in the saints whose lives continue to touch ours. This journey will invite you to reflect on what it means to be a missionary disciple through fellowship, daily celebration of the Eucharist, inspiring talks, and encounter with the mystery of God in our lives. I hope you will prayerfully consider going on this pilgrimage with Franciscan University. May this time of prayer and ecclesial communion renew us and strengthen our commitment to strive for holiness.

    In Christ and St. Francis,

    Father Sean O. Sheridan, TOR
    President, Franciscan University of Steubenville
