St. Mary’s Italian Pilgrimage

Students from Saint Mary’s Catholic School are on a pilgrimage trip to Italy. They began their second day with Mass at the biggest Church in Venice- St. Mark’s Basilica- and joined the local community for their 8:30 AM Mass.
After Mass, they made their way over to see a uniquely Venetian store – a Murano glass factory. The students got to see a first-hand demonstration by an artist about how this type of glass is made.
After that, students had free time for another classic Venetian experience- gondola rides. There was then some free time for lunch and exploring the city.
Next, the group met their guide for a tour of St. Mark’s Basilica. Here, they saw the tomb of the evangelist while learning the intricate history behind this massive Church. They were then able to go up to the balcony to see the mosaics from the life of Christ on the ceiling of the Church.
Next they had a walking tour of the city of Venice, learning about the geographical and historic elements of this city.
They ended their day with another Italian dinner, and students had the opportunity to try Tiramisu, a famous Italian dessert.
