Xaverian Students Wrap Up Pilgrimage to Italy [VIDEO]

Nearly 45 students and a small group of faculty members embarked on a spiritual journey that lasted nearly a month.

A group of students from Xaverian Brothers High School in Westwood recently completed a pilgrimage to Italy, a trip the school organizes each year, according to a recent post on Xaverian's blog

The group comprised 44 students and seven faculty members, all of whom left for Italy on June 21. The trip took the group on a spiritual journey through Rome, Ostia, San Gimignano, Sienna and Florence. 

During the trip, the students engaged in prayer, small group reflection and journaling, according to the blog post. Tim Cady and Bobby Palladino, both incoming seniors at the school, documented their experiences online through Xaverian's Campus Ministry page.

Participants in the pilgrimage, now in its seventh year, attended four formation meetings to prepare for the trip. Those interested in applying for next year’s program can do so in October.
