    From Bishop Sam Jacobs and Father Dave Pivonka, TOR

    “I expected all of you, charismatics from around the world, to celebrate your great jubilee with the pope at Pentecost 2017 in St. Peter's Square"


    If Pope Francis invites you—expects you—to come to Rome, it is probably a good idea to accept his invitation. This is exactly what the Holy Father is doing by inviting Catholics who want to celebrate the Jubilee of Catholic Charismatic Renewal.

    Along with our Holy Father, we would like to invite you to join us on what will surely be a blessed and holy pilgrimage.

    The Charismatic Renewal has been a blessing to the Church for 50 years; the Holy Father wants Catholics to join him in celebration and thanksgiving. While in Rome, we will have the opportunity to visit the major Basilicas of Rome as well as many of the historical sites. There will also be lectures, preaching, times of anointed praise, and plenty of time for fellowship and gelato. Our time in Rome will culminate in a celebration with the Holy Father at St. Peter's on the Solemnity of Pentecost. What an amazing and holy celebration this will be. And you have been invited by the Holy Father himself! How can we say no to that?

    But the pilgrimage does not end in Rome. An optional extension is available. We will depart from Rome for the Shrine of Padre Pio in San Giovanni Rotondo. St. Pio is one of the most beloved saints to have ever lived and his shrine is one of the most visited int he world. While there we will visit the friary where Padre Pio lived, his tomb, and celebrate Mass in the very chapel where Padre Pio prayed. It is a truly inspiring and holy place.

    Please prayerfully consider joining Franciscan University of Steubenville, the National Service committee of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal, and us on a holy pilgrimage that will bless you and bring you abundant grace.


    God bless,


    Bishop Sam Jacobs
