Wadena residents tour Italy
Several Wadena residents went on a pilgrimage to the Shrines Of Italy in November.
Forty-one people were able to get close to Pope Francis at the papal audience on the morning of Wednesday Nov. 13 in Rome at the Vatican. The journey also allowed travelers to experience many events and places including the Sistine Chapel, St. Peters Basilica, Colosseum, Trevi Fountain and Pompeii.
Residents were also able to celebrate Mass in the sanctuary of Padre Pio traveling along to the Abbey of Montecassino - Madonna Del Rosario, San Giovanni Rotondo, then traveled along the beautiful Adriatic coastline to visit the Holy House of Nazareth Loreto. Travelers then traversed the Apennine Mountains and, en-route, visited Assisi, the Birthplace of St. Francis.
