The Pace e Bene Peace and Nonviolence Pilgrimage to Assisi, Italy
June 23-30, 2019,
Led by Rev. John Dear and Dr. Ken Butigan

Celebrate Pace e Bene’s 30th anniversary by taking a powerful pilgrimage to Assisi in June 2019 led by Rev. John Dear and Dr. Ken Butigan!

Join us in a one-week pilgrimage of peace, prayer and nonviolence to Assisi, Italy June 23-30, 2019, to study the life of St. Francis, pray for peace, build community, celebrate Pace e Bene, and deepen our commitment to Gospel nonviolence for the journey ahead and peace work to come.  Pace e Bene’s Coordinator of International Programs, Veronica Pelicaric, and Executive Director Ryan Hall will join Rev. Dear and Dr. Butigan in this once-in-a-lifetime experience—and we hope you will, too!

For three decades Pace e Bene has promoted active nonviolence in the spirit of St. Francis.  Together, we will walk in the footsteps of this peacemaker whose compassion for others, love for the earth, and work for peace and reconciliation has inspired people everywhere.

The Pilgrimage of Peace and Nonviolence to Assisi seeks applications for 30 pilgrims. Participants would be invited to join this pilgrimage not just as a sight-seeing trip, but as a pilgrimage to learn about St. Francis the peacemaker and to deepen our own commitment to Gospel nonviolence and take another step on our own peacemaking journey. This trip then will be a retreat time of prayer and personal renewal, a holy pilgrimage in the long tradition of Christian spirituality.
