St. Catherine University students returned Saturday from their “Catholic Rome Pilgrimage with Sister Andrea." 

Their spring learning experience included plenty of photo opp moments – from a Papal Audience with Pope Francis in St Peter’s Square to a Scavi tour, a special visit to the necropolis underneath the Basilica, where the tomb of St. Peter is located.

The tour is only possible following special permission granted by the “Fabbrica di San Pietro.”

The experience took them to Rome, Assisi and Siena with St. Catherine President Andrea Lee, IHM; Father John Forliti, the University’s chaplain; Laurie Svatek, director of Campus Ministry and Dr. Amy Kelly, director of St. Kate’s Health and Wellness Center.

Eight St. Kate's students and two staff spent their spring break in Denver, walking with their brothers and sisters experiencing poverty. Katie's explored Denver's network of social services, walking with people on the margins, and discovering their call to work for social justice in our world.
