Footsteps in Rome


This is the blog for our pilgrimage to Rome. From day to day, you can follow us on our spiritual journey in the Eternal City. It represents our Saint Mary’s College Jan Term 2012 course. We are present-day pilgrims walking in the footsteps of the early Christians. As an example of “backpack journalism,” this website gives you a chance to hear our stories, conversations, and insights; along with a viewing of our photos and videos of this remarkable experience. Welcome!
