Join us for a Pilgrimage in the Eternal City 

The FADICA Fall 2024 Pilgrimage and Retreat will offer participants a chance to inform their philanthropy with broader knowledge of the Church while deepening connections to faith and one another.  Held at a unique moment in history – just after the second assembly of the global synod in Rome – we are eager to truly “journey in synodality” in method and inquiry. Participants will meet with leaders in the Roman Curia and other Church entities, as well as engage diplomats, journalists, academics, and community leaders. There will be a retreat day and time, too, for enjoying the cuisine, art, and architecture of the eternal city. Coordinated by FADICA leaders, FADICA’s program committee and board, with support from the Lay Centre in Rome, the pilgrimage and retreat are meant to be formative and informative for members and deepen the bonds of our FADICA community to better serve our mission.

The Pilgrimage and Retreat will being at Sunday November 10 with a welcome reception and conclude Friday November 15 with a closing dinner.
