St Michael's is on virtual pilgrimage from Florence to Rome

16 Feb 2021, 1:15 p.m.

On Ash Wednesday, 17 February, Revd Caroline will be setting off on a 312.4 mile walk around South Manchester (and, hopefully, a little further afield, restrictions permitting). She will also be leading St Michael & All Angels’ on a virtual pilgrimage known as the Via di Francesco, arriving on Ascension Day, Thursday 13<sup>th</sup> May.

The Via di Francesco takes an ancient Roman road from Florence to Rome, following in the footsteps of St Francis across stunning and peaceful countryside, passing important Franciscan sites such as La Verna Sanctuary, Assisi and the Rieti Valley.

The Via di Francesco begins at the Basilica di Santa Croce in Florence and ends at the Vatican in Rome.

Details of how you can sponsor Revd Caroline, who is raising funds for St Michael’s, will be available shortly.
