Summer 2017: Art and Spirituality in the Basilica of Saint Francis of Assisi
Encouraged by the experience of previous years and given the numerous requests made by the pilgrims, we remind you that this year as well from July 1, two daily guided tours will be organized to the Basilica San Francesco of Assisi.
Visits, available only in Italian, will be guided by a Friar, every day with a double appointment: 10.30am and 4.00pm; The duration of each visit is approximately 75 minutes.
Pilgrims may appear before the start time at the information office, in the lower square, to book.
This initiative of the Friars of the Sacred Convent aims to give the opportunity to all the pilgrims in Assisi to know better the life of Saint Francis and his message through art.
Not only art but also spirituality this summer; In fact, remember that until the end of October the Crypt with the Tomb of St. Francis will be open every Friday and Saturday from 21.00 to 22.00 only for the silent personal prayer. At 22.00 ends with Compieta's community prayer.
The "Mass of the Pilgrim" is celebrated every day at 6 pm in the lower Church, at the Chapel of St. Catherine (Sunday is 5 pm). The celebration involved especially those pilgrims who are walking to Assisi;
Every Sunday, however, for all the English-speaking pilgrims at 9:00 am in the Upper Church is proposed the celebration of Mass in English.
