Ad Limina 2012 - A Virtual Pilgrimage

About the trip

Join Catholic News Herald staff writer SueAnn Howell on a virtual pilgrimage as she travels to Italy to report on Charlotte Bishop Peter J. Jugis’ ad limina visit to Rome.

The ad limina visit typically takes place every five years, giving each bishop from dioceses around the world an opportunity to give a “state of the diocese” report to the Holy Father, attend meetings at the Vatican and rejuvenate themselves spiritually by attending Masses and spending time in personal prayer in the heart of Christendom.

In addition to reporting on the ad limina meetings and special Masses, SueAnn will share her impressions, insights and photos from her perspective as a first-time pilgrim visiting Assisi, Siena and the Eternal City.
