St. Francis Pilgrimages organizes and accompanies pilgrimages to Italy, the Holy Land, and other Catholic destinations. Each pilgrimage focuses on spirituality through immersion in the culture, prayer, sacraments, reflections, encounters with local people, fellowship, and deep knowledge of each place. People regularly tell us that their pilgrimage with us was transformative, experiential, and spiritual. We also help people organize their personal pilgrimages throughout Italy or private retreats in Assisi.
St. Francis Pilgrimages is owned and operated by Bret and Katia Thoman. Married since 2002, and professed Secular Franciscans (Third Order Franciscans) since 2006, they divide their time between Italy (where Katia is from) and the US (where Bret is from), with their two small children.
