Our annual parish pilgrimage in association with MAP Travel took place over the past week visiting Italy’s undiscovered jewel in Le Marche. Among the many highlights during the week were a visit to the UNESCO World Heritage town on Urbino, a day trip to San Marino, a full pilgrimage day at the Holy House of Loreto, one of the most revered Marian shrines in the world, attendance at an exclusive Rossini concert, in addition to a full programme of religious services. There was also ample opportunity to enjoy the coastal Adriatic town of Pesaro. A big thank you to MAP Travel who were our travel companions in organising and arranging the programme. We are already planning for 2019!
